LOVE MONKEY Edward Monkton
We adored Love Monkey the moment his eyes met ours. This sweet and charming tale, in Edward Monkton's humorous and quirky, insightful and even spiritual style, will melt hearts in an instant. Monkey crafts a beautiful wooden heart and, having dreamt of a girl monkey whose smile 'lit up his soul like sunshine', he sets out on an epic quest to find her, so that he may give her his heart, the only true gift he has. At last, he finds her, and even though his heart is now chipped and blemished through travels and time, Dream Monkey cherishes it, telling him, 'All my life I have been waiting for a heart like this; a heart that speaks the truth', as she, in return, gives him her heart. This gorgeous little book is a perfect gift of love.
