Join two little monkeys as they tussle over a banana, until finally they learn to say the magic word - please! From envy to joy, follow the emotional ups and downs every child goes through when somebody else has what they want. Packed with humour, fun and a riot of colour, Ed Vere skilfully teaches the value of manners and sharing through cleverly depicted toddler behaviour and only two words!
