It’s a young tamarin monkey’s birthday and every animal in the rainforest is invited to his party. But that means there’s some seriously speedy planning needed to make sure it’s a celebration to remember. Monkey rushes through the jungle to get the special cake, funky band and colourful decorations he needs, but nothing seems to be going right. That’s until he meets a super-chilled sloth, who teaches him how to slow down and really look at, listen to and experience the vivid world around him in a much more mindful manner. The rhyming text, set to a jumping, jungle beat, is written by Dr Jess French, CBeebies presenter, vet and conservationist, and is brought to life with beautiful illustrations by emerging talent, Anna Terreros-Martin. The book includes a charming info-spread on the animals featured and mindful tips for parents and children.
The animals in this story are based on real, endangered species that live in the hot and steamy Amazon rainforest in South America.
