"Chee-chatta-chee!" A sweet, funny tale of a small monkey's first swings toward independence — and his new appreciation of the comforts of home

Early one morning in the big mango tree, Little Monkey wakes up and finds his whole family still asleep. Is Little Monkey brave enough and big enough to go find someone else to play with? He thinks so! And bim-ba-lah, bim-ba-lah, he swings away, hand over hand, until he finds a sloth to hang upside down with (too quiet), a parrot to sing along with (too squawky), and even a hissing boa to join in a game of Curl My Tail Around in Tricky Ways (way too tricky!). Will Little Monkey find just the right playmates, in just the right place?
