The Chimpanzees of Happytown by Giles Andreae and Guy Parker-Rees
This book tells the story of how the chimpanzees live sad and dismal lives in Drabsville – that is until they meet Chutney. He brings back a seed from his travels and everyone, except the mayor, loves the tree that grows from it. This is a wonderfully heart-warming story that is told in verse. There is plenty of humour and the artwork is full of detail. Look out for the banana roundabout and Chutney in jail as the mayor goes off on holiday to the country.
Suitable for ages four to 100! (Orchard Books, PB, £5.99).
