Monkey on the Run

Author(s): Leo Timmers

Picture Books

A traffic jam becomes the ultimate playground for Monkey as he leaps from one vehicle to another, finding stories within stories.

Papa Monkey and Little Monkey are on their way. But the street is very busy and they are going so slowly!

Little Monkey loses patience and jumps onto the fire engine. Up the ladder from there and he joins a TV crew! Then the garbage truck, an aquarium bus, a food cart for rabbits packed with carroty treats, Arctic animals traveling by snow globe, a jewel thief's getaway car ...

There is so much going on in the street, it's become a playground!

Each vehicle in this wordless picture book contains a world of detail, activity and humor to share with curious toddlers.
