Very good appealing to child. Good quality book, strong pages so not easily ripped by younger children. Nice and bright my boy loves monkeys so was looking forward to reading it. Luke loved the illustrations for the monkeys and other animals. Luke enjoyed me reading the story to him he is dyslexic so was good to help him understand lots of people need help with spelling and writing etc. He loved the story and I found myself reading it over and over again! it helped him understand it`s ok to need help with spelling and writing. I think it was a fab book and enjoyed reading it to Luke. To us very good value for money as the book makes my child feel better about himself. I would love to purchase the sequel.

Hannah Awarded The Jake The Monkey Tail Book 4.5/5
Love the look of the book and Hallie loved the picture of Jake the monkey on the front cover. A good quality book, well-made and will last. This is very well written and has great colourful illustrations. Jake the blue monkey and his animal friends. I would read this book to Hallie weekly and she really enjoyed the story. We loved the magical jungle with all the lovely letters and it really did help Hallie improve her spelling and sound words out. A superb story, well-illustrated, really helps with word recognition and spelling. A good book to read and has helped Hallie so much. Price a bit high, but well worth it. Would love to read the sequel. We have also recommended highly. Hannah Bletts – Hallie 6 Years
Janet Awarded The Jake The Monkey Tail Book 4.6/5
Looked great. Really good quality and fab illustration of Monkey on the front. We love books in our house so was looking forward to reading this one. The story is all about Jake venturing into a magical place with letters all around him as not good at spelling. The story is great fun to read and really helped Flora with her spelling, but most importantly helped her understand the importance of asking for help. The story has a good theme, educational and a ‘Must Have’ for parents with children learning to read and write. It has helped us so much and we loved reading the book. Illustrations are wonderful and really kept Flora’s attention. Would love to purchase the sequel. Recommended to loads of friends. We really loved this book. Thank you.
