It's hard being a very little monkey in a big troop, in an even bigger jungle and Monkey feels that she is always missing out. So she is determined to climb to the top of the tallest tree in the jungle and she will do it all on her own, just to prove that she is not so little.

The only problem is that a large animal with claws and stripes and rather sharp teeth is closely following her and she is blissfully unaware of this.

The journey to find the tree is not easy but Monkey does it without any se

La portada me atrapó en la biblio por su colorido, alegría y textura.
Es una joyita. La historia no tiene giros tan sorprendentes como la del cocodrilo, pero fluye muy bien y ofrece el cierre necesario. Las ilustraciones son preciosas.
Estoy sacando libros de este estilo de la biblio para empaparme del estilo de cara a cosillas que voy a hacer en 2019 y este también ha sido una grata sorpresa. :)

Beautifully illustrated book about a little monkey who feels left out because she is so much smaller than all the other monkeys. Positive message suggesting being different is not bad even if it seems to be to begin with.

I have all of Marta Altés' illustrated children's books, she's my favourite children's book author. Little Monkey is an endearing and funny story of a brave little monkey that goes off to discover the world and comes back appreciating what she has back home. The illustrations are gorgeous, made with watercolours and coloured pencils; a delight to the eyes. Lovely hand made letters and beautiful colour palette too! Highly recommendable.

This book is simply brilliant. The visual content is astounding in it's depth and detail and the tale warms the hearts of children and adults alike. I gave it to my niece and we have read it many times together, much to the delight of us both. Highly recommended reading for all :)

The artwork in this book is nothing short of a masterpiece, the level of detail in each page is simply stunning. The story itself is packed full of the charm and wit we've come to expect from Marta Altés, I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!

Marta Altes loves to tell stories and her love of illustration saw her study for a degree in Graphic Design in Barcelona. Marta moved to the UK to study for an MA in Children's Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art (the best decision she ever made) and graduated last year.

What she likes the most about illustration is that it allows her to bring a smile to the person looking at her drawings
