Jams lives with his mum, dad and his best friend and biggest headache, Thimble, a hugely clever monkey who isn’t his dad’s biggest fan. (Don’t tell anyone what Thimble did with the superglue...) When Mum organises a house-swap holiday in France, Jams’ one job is to remember the right house number. And that’s just the start of their adventures, once Thimble and Dad find in the borrowed house a speedboat, a drill and a makeshift burglar outfit. But somehow Thimble always saves the day (just about).

Read an extract.

Praise for Thimble Monkey Superstar:

‘Madcap humour, corny one-liners and ludicrous situations abound in this light-hearted chapter book… The illustrations are suitably wild and wacky and the short, snappy text make this an accessible and fast-paced adventure.’ BookTrust

‘It’s very funny and the text positively bristles with jokes and snappy one-liners, the butt of most of them being Jams’ hapless dad. Nicely divided into satisfying chapters and full of Martin Chatterton’s wonderful bug-eyed illustrations, this is easy and addictive reading.’ Andrea Reece, Lovereading4kids
