A very clever, funny story from the author of the prize-winning The Gruffalo. Can butterfly help little monkey find his mum? Yes, finally, but only after a lot of trial and error as butterfly misunderstands monkey's descriptions and leads him to all sorts of unsuitable animals.

Predictable plot. Too many mispronunciations from narrator, which when combined with terrible accents, was really distracting. Disappointing.
