Who would believe it could be so hard to get a drink of water? And to find it at last, cool and fresh but out of reach - that was a problem indeed for a young monkey. But luckily for him, he had an observant and logical mind - but this is more than can be said for the dog that made friends with the bear, or the vain jackdaw; and as for the silly ewe and the nanny goat....

These fable-like stories were the first children’s book written for Quentin Blake by John Yeoman.
