Mad About Monkeys

Mad About Monkeys

By Owen Davey
Published by Flying Eye Books

Monkeys, monkeys, monkeys! Ever wondered about our simian friends and what makes them so special? If you're bananas about monkeys you'll love this fact filled book from Owen Davey.

With over 250 species inhabiting our planet, this book explores the many different types of monkeys from the smallest Pygmy Marmoset to the largest Mandrill, and provides all the facts you wanted to know and more. Discover where monkeys come from, how they swing from tree to tree, and why they fight and play with each other.

Visually striking in every way, you'd be hard pushed to find a more complete illustrated guide to these cheeky monkeys. Each page is jam packed with interesting facts and detailed illustrations of each type of monkey. It covers everything from social nature to mischievous reputations. A truly wonderful read that will make you mad about monkeys!

If you're unfamiliar with the work of Owen Davey I suggest you check him out. Mad About Monkeys was the predecessor to the wonderful Smart About Sharks, which is also available to buy from Flying Eye Books. To find out more about the author and illustrator please check out the interview I had with him here. Mad About Monkeys is available to buy from all good bookshops and from the Flying Eye Books website.
