When Little Monkey is frightened by the storm, he runs to his mother’s side. “Don’t worry,” she says. “There is always one safe place.” But when he’s left all alone, Little Monkey doesn’t know where to find that place. He searches all through the jungle — in a nest, on an island, in a cave — but none of the places are the right place. Tired, scared, and sad, Little Monkey wonders if he’ll ever find his one safe place ever again.

Susan Winter’s lovely watercolor illustrations complement the reassuring, lyrical text, making this an ideal bedtime read.
