Monkey boy
By Donovan Bixley

I am excited about this book and hope it is just the first of many. This is one of those books that capture the attention of so many readers for so many different reasons. It is as the blurb says, part comic, part novel and from the looks of it all action, with full on humour as well.
Donovan Bixley is well known for some wonderful illustrations and art work and this book is no different. Dad’s will giggle too if reading this to their children. The trailer is a great introduction to this book about Jimmy Grimholt the youngest sailor aboard the warship H.M.S. Fury which is bound for bloodcurdling battle.
Do hunt out for it but be prepared for battle and even a ghost or two!
