Room on the Broom, The Gruffalo, Monkey Puzzle and Tiddler ("The Fish Who Cried Wolf" - really? That's a better title??) all have changes to the US text that make them a bit less appealing if you've read the British texts. We love to give these as gifts but prefer to give the British versions.
I actually think this one is better than The Gruffalo, the other book written by this author that won the Smarties award.
My 3 and half daughter likes this one as well. Very nice pictures (I expected them!). It is very easy to follow for my daughter and it is a cute story. Summing up, the book is about a monkey who lost her mom and a butterfly who helps find the monkey's mom based on how the little monkey describes her. I used it to make my little one describe me (her mom), her dad, her best friend,etc . I think it could be more interesting for young children (3-5) than older kids (5 up).
I think this book is more "similar" to "Room on the broom", "The Gruffalo", "The Gruffalo's child" because you have more "repetitions" and it rhymes. It is definitely less wordy than ""The Whale and the snail".
My favorite remain "Room on the Broom" and "The Gruffalo" though... :-)
My 2 year old enjoys the story. My 6 and 8 year olds will listen to it too, but it's better for younger kids. Although I don't think my 2 year old understands the 'punch line' that the butterfly can't find the monkey's Mum, because her own babies don't look like her. He does enjoy saying "No, no, no, that's a elephant!!!" etc on each page. For older kids, my favourite Julia Donaldson book is "The Snail and the Whale". (My 2 year old also likes that one too, but Monkey Puzzle makes a quicker naptime read.)
