Summary

Night Monkey and Day Monkey's worlds are as different as … night and day! What one fears, the other loves, what one understands only confuses the other. But in learning about each other's opposite worlds, they also learn to be the best of friends.

Boisterous and rhythmic fun from Julia Donaldson, the creator of The Gruffalo. Read by Imelda Staunton.

Different from story

There is a line in the story on this that says "naughty black monkeys" and in my child's book it says "two naughty monkeys". Why is this different on the recording?
