But what happens when the jungle monkeys find themselves in a terrifying predicament—and Monica is the only one who can save the day? As Monica learns, being different is actually a wonderful thing!

This is a wonderful children's book about dealing with bullies.  This book is a good book for today since bullying is so prevalent these days.  The book is very well written and written in a fashion for young ones.  It's very cute with the wonderful illustrations.
 The character used in this book is a monkey.  When Monica's good friend went away for the day, Monica was left by herself.  She finally decided to go to Monkey Beach.  She normally doesn't like going there since she is made fun of.  She is different and much smaller than the others. The reason she is different is that she lives in the jungle with her other animal friends and the other monkey think that is odd.
Monica's feelings are hurt when the other monkeys make fun of her while she is playing in the water.
Something horrible happens to all of them.  I loved how the author took Monica and had her become the heroine.
The author gave many lessons in this little book for young ones and young at hearters.  Everyone is different. That doesn't mean you can't be friends. It doesn't mean you're terrible.  It just means we are all different in our own different ways.  Making fun and bullying only means that maybe the bullier is unhappy and feels lonely.  They may suffer from the same bullying.  Bullying is not the answer.  It only escalates the problem.  The author wrote a cute little book about making fun of others and bullying.  Not enough can be said about bullying these days.  Terrible things are happening because of bullying.  It has a lasting effect.  The story was presented in a fun, cute way by using little monkeys.  Children can relate to the animals because all children love animals.  The illustrations in the book were wonderful with a wonderful colorful cover.  Everyone should read this book.  Not just children, but teachers, parents, grand parents and just everyone.

I was given a complimentary copy of MONICA THE MONKEY from the author Rachel Michaels for my view of the  book.  No other compensation took place.

I would give this book 5 STARS.
