Over the weekend I found out some very special news.
The Rare Monkey Can’t, Couldn’t, Can! was shortlisted for the prestigious Rubery Book Award (Children’s) 2017.
“A simple, gentle book about a monkey who doesn’t feel he can do anything. He visits other animals – an elephant, a lion and a tortoise amongst others – and is frustrated by his inability to copy their ways. He eventually discovers what he can do and learns that every animal is different and has its own way of doing things. It’s a lovely book with a valuable lesson demonstrated in a pleasing way.”
”The Rubery Prize is a prestigious international book award seeking the best books by indie writers, self published authors and books published by independent presses, judged by reputable judges.”
