You may know Stuart Simmonds as an accomplished cricketer and sports coach. He also writes children’s books. We were lucky enough to review some of the Hannah the Spanner books last year. The first series of books from Stuart Simmonds. This included Hannah the Spanner and the Circus, Hannah the Spanner and the Trip to the Moon, and Hannah the Spanner and the Dancing Bear. Harry The Karate Monkey is the first book in a new series by Stuart Simmonds. We were sent a copy of the book to review as well as being able to offer our readers the chance to win their very own copy.
Harry The Karate Monkey
In this book, Harry transforms from Lucy’s adorable stuffed toy sidekick into a very naughty monkey. The tormentor of gangsters, teachers, parents, and their poorly behaved children. All this happens whilst continuing to look cute and also making sure that no harm comes Lucy.
This is the first book of the Harry The Karate Monkey series. There will be seven books in the ‘Harry’ series. With the next book being published in the Spring of 2021.
Written with four to nine-year-olds in mind. Just like the Hannah the Spanner series this book is funny and witty. Able to entertain adults as much as their children.
The colourful illustrations in this book are the creation of the very talented Bill Greenhead. Helping the children to enjoy not only the story but the pictures too.
What Do We Love About Harry The Karate Monkey?
We love that this series of books features Lucy, Hannah the Spanners sister. What we love is that Harry The Karate Monkey is actually a toy. All children wish for their toys to come to life and Harry does.
There is a very adventurous trip to the zoo. We wish our zoo had a monorail like the one in this book. It reminds us of the monorail in Walt Disney World.
We love the details in the illustrations. Little E loves that the school bus sign actually reads as the cool bus. This first book is a great introduction to the new characters in this series. We can’t wait to see what Harry and his friends get up to next.
