Collins Big Cat is a guided reading series for ages 4--7 edited by Cliff Moon. Top children's authors and illustrators have created fiction and non-fiction books that your children will love to read, banded to help you choose the right book for every child. Practical teaching notes are included at the back of each book. This colourful book with hilarious cartoon illustrations is a wordless story set in the jungle. A pair of monkeys have their eye on a juicy-looking fruit hanging just out of reach. The wordless story follows their inventive but unsuccessful attempts to grab the tempting fruit. Finally, the monkeys deduce that cooperation might be the most fruitful method for obtaining the prize - but there's a sting in the tale...A storyboard on pages 14-15 provides an opportunity for children to retell the story in their own words.
