Doctor Monkey - An astonishing story of wheezes and sneezes by Felix Hayes and Hannah Broadway
Bloomsbury, 2011. ISBN 9781408806548.
Monkey and Robot are best friends and they live together in a big house. One day, Robot's head aches, his nose runs and he just want to lie down. But, instead of being sympathetic, Monkey just says, 'Brilliant!' It gives him a great opportunity to be a doctor. So he looks after Robot, doing all the things that are good for helping get over colds. Robot soon feels better and wants to get up, but Dr Monkey insists he stay in bed. But when Robot finally falls asleep, something happens . . .
This is a cheery story about having a cold that will appeal to young children and perhaps reinforce that what mum says about staying in bed and sleeping being the best cure.
This is the first in a series about these two characters and there are fun and games in the book and also at the website for the books.
