When a mischievous monkey discovers a paintbox, he has a brilliant idea, but things don't go quite as Monkey has planned. The hilarious rhyming text is ideal for reading aloud.
Hello, I'm Steve Smallman. I'm an author and illustrator of children's books, a muralist, a poet(sort of)and a bit of a show off!I started working as an illustrator while I was still at art college then after about 20 years decided to have a go at writing stories of my own. I've written over 40 books so far (more in production!) and these days I'm better known as an author than as an illustrator.I'm married to Ann (Who is wonderful and has a proper job!)we have 4 children who are all grown-ups and 4 fabulous grandchildren!
I'm not very good at being a grown-up so I write books, illustrate, paint murals and visit schools all over the UK and abroad keeping so busy that no-on notices that I don't have a real job!
