We work separately – he’s in London and I’m in Glasgow – but he sends me letters with lovely funny pictures on the envelopes. Julia Donaldson is author of many of today’s best-loved picture books including The Gruffalo and Stick Man. It's a warm and humorous story about a monkey that lives in the night that meets the day monkey and sees all the daytime delights of animals and sights that the daylight brings (and vice versa).

Julia Donaldson's collaborations with Axel Scheffler have sold millions of copies, and Room on the Broom is now an Academy Award-nominated short film.Julia Donaldson is the internationally renowned author of the best-loved picture books in the world, including The Gruffalo, What the Ladybird Heard, Sugarlump and the Unicorn and Night Monkey, Day Monkey.

Written by Julia Donaldson, author of The Gruffalo, this comical and touching friendship story explores individual differences, opposites and night and day. One of the finest stories from Julia Donaldson, the author behind The Gruffalo , Room on the Broom , The Scarecrow's Wedding and What the Ladybird Heard .You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.

This prompted me to unearth some plays I’d written for a school reading group, and since then I’ve had 20 plays published. But Day Monkey doesn't recognise the creatures of the night, confusing fireflies for winking eyes, bats for flying mice and the moon for a banana. One of my television songs, A Squash and a Squeeze, was made into a book in 1993, with illustrations by the wonderful Axel Scheffler.Julia Donaldson’s beloved rhyming picture book story about two monkeys who are as different as night and day yet still learn to be friends – with adorable, sumptuous illustrations from Lucy Richards. Night Monkey and Day Monkey both live in the same jungle but their lives are worlds apart until one day Night Monkey wakes up in the day and Day Monkey wakes in the night. Matching other reviews, it's a shame that the dark writing is often against a dark background which can make it difficult to read when you have dim lighting to bring your little ones into the sleep zone but we have had much fun reading this together and the story gives many opportunities to use different voices to entertain. The bounce of the rhyming scheme and metre is perfect, the examples each monkey gives in turn for finding fault with the world when they're the fish-out-the-water are great, and the end will leave a beaming grin on anyone. Full of fun and food for thought, Night Monkey, Day Monkey is beautifully drawn by Lucy Richards, one of the most talented illustrators drawing today.
