"That's Not My Monster" is his absolute favorite, and he likes "That's Not My Dragon" the 2nd. I bought That's Not My Pony, That's Not My Monkey and That's Not My Lion recently. He enjoys the monkey one, but the other 2 he doesn't care much for. I couldn't say why, I think textures are really the same book to book, so it must be the pictures. I highly recommend these books though.
"That's Not My Monkey" is far and away her most ambitious and sparkling book, bringing Ms. Watt's love of monkeys and things that could possibly be mistaken for monkeys to material that could not have more everyday relevance. She explores the theme with unalloyed merriment, and she is fearless about the embarrassment that usually accompanies it.
"That's Not My Monkey" is structured as a vastly entertaining pilgrimage down the monkey jungle, with Ms. Watt as the wittiest, most valuable tour guide imaginable. She digresses only a little, mostly to make gut-busting asides about the British Westminister parliamentary system. Otherwise, we are treated to various well-developed characters who are not our monkey for their tails are too velvety, feet too smooth, eyebrows too hairy, tongue too fuzzy, or ears so soft.
"That's Not My Monkey" rapidly unravels into a maelstrom of tension and paranoia, as Ms. Watt draws a disturbing picture of how easy it is for even the most careful to mistake their monkey.
It's hard to know whether to be enraged or delighted by the unexpected denouement with which Ms. Watt wraps up her story, but if the mark of a good thriller is the compulsion to reread it immediately on finishing, to see if the clues can be spotted second time round, then "That's Not My Monkey" has it, in spades.
This is a great starter picture book. It can be expanded with your imagination! It is also a book containing different textures. As such, certain items have different textures like the monkeys ears are made of felt.
I suggest you read "The Read Out Loud Handbook";
They are wonderful. Very cute drawings, short and sweet.
My son received Monkey and Elephant for Christmas when he was 10 months old.
He is a year old now and is still enjoying them.
I ordered Monkey and Princess one for baby shower gifts.
