Monkey and the Little One



Monkey and the Little One written and illustrated by Claire Alexander (2015)

Monkey lived alone in the jungle, until one day when Little One moved in next to him. Monkey just wanted to be left alone, but Little One copied everything he did. Monkey asked Little One to go away, but Little One didn’t understand monkey-speak, so he stayed. Finally, Monkey shouted at Little One and Little One understood him. Now Monkey was alone in the jungle again, but it was different. Monkey began to worry about Little One and went out to find him. And when he found Little One, Monkey invited him to come back and live with him.


Sometimes it’s hard to make new friends. Sometimes it’s not so hard. You just have to be open to the possibility of friendship and the differences friends might have.
