Keith DuQuette has been highly acclaimed for his beautifully rendered animals. Now he turns his attention to monkeys in a rollicking romp through the jungle!

Little Monkey is so bored by his troop that one day he hops on a lily pad and takes a ride downstream. But soon he is lost, far from home. Then he remembers what his mama told him: "If you ever get lost, find other monkeys. They will lead you home." All day long Little Monkey meets many different kinds of monkeys, who teach him fun new things like howling, swinging from vines, and hugging--but none of them know the way home. Will Little Monkey ever find his way back to his own troop?

Featuring a "Meet the Monkeys" afterword that showcases all the different monkey species found in the book, Little Monkey Lost is a treat for primate fans of all ages.
