Another lovely review of See Monkey

At See Monkey launch: me and illustrator Kathy Creamer reading the book aloud.

There’s a lovely review of See Monkey, as well as of another recent picture book published by Little Pink Dog Books(Ziggy’s Zoo, by Pat Simmons and Vicky Pratt) on the Just Write For Kids blog. Here are some short extracts:

Sophie Masson brilliantly targets the toddler market with her short, sharp sentences and witty ‘monkey tricks’ – absolutely reflective of the typical cheeky toddler / monkey behaviours. Kathy Creamer befittingly brings her characters to life with superb colour, high action and the liveliest of expressions….

See Monkey is a spirited blend of childhood freedom, pushing the boundaries and simply having some imaginative fun, with the gentlest of guidance and restraint to acknowledge the consequences of boisterous actions. Plenty of excitement and laughter for children from age two.

You can read the whole of the review of See Monkey, as well as the review of Ziggy’s Zoo, here.

    Writing at Brush Farm House

    Slowly, out of facts and dreams and half-remembered stories

    the play takes shape,

    applauded by Victorian ghosts of theatre impresarios

    who chose the iron lacework of this house;

    guffawed at by the lads who found themselves in penal servitude

    because of a chance throw of fate’s dice;

    causing perhaps a rare sparkle in the eye of a patriarch

    riven by self-doubt,

    marvelling at how ghosts echo down the years

    through new-fangled machines.
