A great rhyming read-aloud story with a twist: it never ends! Two stories in one book - turn the book upside down when you get to the end to discover another story!

One day, a monkey is happily eating a banana when he sees a tiger. Off he runs through the forest, dodging perils until he reaches safety at the end of the book by running up a tree. That's when the fun really starts... as readers can then turn the book upside down and watch Monkey swinging through the trees back through the book, chasing a lizard (and narrowly avoiding a hungry snake), before going back down a tree on page 1 to take us back to the beginning again. This funny, rhyming cat-and-mouse tale has an innovative twist - turn the book upside down to see the story continue!
