       Synopsis: This is a colourful and whimsical
       picture book about a little girl who wakes up to
       find out that her brother isn’t in his in bed.
       Instead, there’s a monkey in bed. She is
       surprised and can’t believe her eyes. No one
       seems to think that its strange that a monkey is
       accompanying the little girl to school and
       breakfast. So, she tries her best to find out
       what happened to her brother. The reader will
       find the twist at the end of the story quite
       funny and thought provoking. 
       
       Overall Thoughts: I loved reading this
       whimsically illustrated picture book. I later
       read it to my niece and nephew and they both were
       transported by it. They loved the bright
       illustrations and they wanted to talk about the
       various messages of the book. Kids love the idea
       that dreams can come true. My niece and nephew
       felt empowered by this message. They kept saying,
       All we have to do is dream. Then all things are
       possible.
