A playful and eye-catching story about showing off and sharing
The founder of popular children's décor brand Petit Collage brings her signature collage style and modern, kid-friendly sensibility to picture books with this story of an attention-seeking little monkey with a great big imagination. When Monkey jumps high, he decides he must be a rabbit. When he roars, Monkey just knows he must be a lion--until Lion shows him how loudly a real lion can roar. In this playful game of "monkey see, monkey do," Monkey and his animal friends share what makes each of them special just the way they are.
