Book Review: Monkey Business by Wallace Edwards - Reviewed by (11 Aug 2013)

Monkey Business is an interesting and funny book filled with idiom's.

Firstly the illustrations are something quite special. They are full and rich and colorful and flood the whole page with lots to look at. On every page there is also a hidden monkey which you need to find, which can be tricky at best of times.

Some saying are better known than others, such as letting the tiger out of the bag or a bull on the china shop. Or playing by ear. The saying are one thing, but when accompanied by these very clever drawing it takes on a life of its own.
