Life is never boring now that Jams and his family have a monkey to look after. Jams and his mum love Thimble, but Dad is determined to get rid of him - to a zoo, a school, even a demolition site. But when Jams and his dad are in mortal danger, Thimble proves once and for all why he is a Monkey Superstar! Thimble is very clever and very naughty - and just the best friend Jams has been waiting for. 


Praise for Thimble Monkey Superstar:

'Madcap humour, corny one-liners and ludicrous situations abound in this light-hearted chapter book… The illustrations are suitably wild and wacky and the short, snappy text make this an accessible and fast-paced adventure.' BookTrust

‘It’s very funny and the text positively bristles with jokes and snappy one-liners, the butt of most of them being Jams’ hapless dad. Nicely divided into satisfying chapters and full of Martin Chatterton’s wonderful bug-eyed illustrations, this is easy and addictive reading.’ Andrea Reece, Lovereading4kids
