Julia Donaldson's beloved rhyming picture book story about two monkeys who are as different as night and day yet still learn to be friends - with adorable, sumptuous illustrations from Lucy Richards.

Night Monkey and Day Monkey don't think they have much in common. But when they each spend time in the other's opposite worlds, they learn a lot - and they also learn to be the best of friends.

One of the finest stories from Julia Donaldson, the author behind The Gruffalo, Room on the Broom and What The Ladybird Heard. Full of fun and food for thought, Night Monkey, Day Monkey is beautifully drawn by Lucy Richards, one of the most talented illustrators drawing today.
