One Funky Monkey

By Stacey McCleary
Illustrated by Sue deGennaro

A riotous rock 'n' roll animal counting picture book. New board book edition.

One funky monkey as though in a trance, moving and grooving he started to dance … as do the rest of the animals. One Funky Monkey is a counting book that features some very funky animals engaging in various dances – from hip-hopping elephants to jiving giraffes, moonwalking meerkats and 'lion' dancing lions. Ultimately they all join a conga line as we count through all the animals one by one.
