Anthony Browne has a magical touch illustrating monkeys. How he manages to embody each feeling in the expressions rendered is amazing. Whether shy, confident, embarrassed or bored, each feeling is easily identified, offering a visual reference point for a more challenging quest to name and understand our feelings. With simple questions, a range of feelings are explored and expressed giving children an opportunity to learn a little bit more about themselves and possibly gain a little understanding of others. Note from the catalog copy: "quintessential chimp renderer Anthony Browne". Exactly.
