Third in the Laugh Out Loud Book Awards shortlisted Thimble Monkey Superstar series
When Mum goes away for the week, Jams, Dad and Thimble the monkey are left with just thirty quid for the groceries. Dad makes a shopping list, but when Thimble gets hold of the supermarket trolley, everything goes bananas. Soon the intrepid trio are so desperate they will do anything for money … anything! Will Dad end up selling his soul to make ends meet, or can Jams and his monkey pal save the day?
Praise for the book
“Some books come perfectly pitched at children’s humour … and the adventures of Jams and his mischievous monkey certainly hit the spot! There won’t be a dry eye (tears of laughter, not tears of despair) in the house as one boy and his manic monkey steal the show again in Jon Blake’s third riotously funny Thimble the monkey story which comes packed with brilliant one-liners, zany antics and the funniest dad this side of story time … And what makes these stories extra special is that Jams has cerebral palsy and is based on Blake’s own son who has the same condition. But Jams’ disability does not define him in these adventures, instead offering a positive portrayal of a boy with the neurological disorder.” – Lancashire Post
