If you've ever met someone who is determined to be unhappy, despite all efforts to the contrary, this is the book for you! A charming tale of friendship between a monkey and a penguin, and as an extra, a fresh variation on the slip-on-a-banana-peel gag (which I'm sure you thought was impossible). (Emily)
