Who’s the cheeky monkey at your place? Someone’s pretending to be asleep, but one little monkey is awake and soon the whole house will be a zoo!

From the team who snuggled you down and tucked you in with Good Night, MeDaddy’s Cheeky Monkey is about the games we love to play in the morning — bringing to life all the funny and affectionate names we call our children: cheeky monkey, lucky duck, sweet pea, silly billy and more.

…one of those books that just grabs you from the first moment you pick it off the shelf. It gave me that little skip in the heart beat I get when I see something really beautiful.
— WE HEART BOOKS, July 2008
Daddo and Quay’s latest book is a beauty, which children will enjoy listening to when very young, and reading as they get a little older. The images are innovative and natural all at the same time. This is a book you’ll read and treasure for many years.
Andrew Daddo has a special talent for spotting the things that most parents do, and turning it into something that parents and children can relate to. Emma Quay’s illustrations work really well to convey the warmth and character of the relationships being depicted. The whole effect is both soft, and accessible - any family; a standard day; and tons of love.

One of the best.
