A quaint book all about Marty the monkey who loves parties then he finds out he’s allergic to nuts. His mouth goes funny and swells up and he ends up in hospital. Oh dear all the other monkeys can eat nuts but not Marty! His next birthday party would have to be nut free.
The text throughout is simple and accompanied by vibrant colourful pictures whilst promoting awareness about allergies to nuts. In the back of the book is a summary for parents and caregivers by Dr. Elizabeth Pickford all about allergies to nuts and what to look out for. This is an excellent book! Poor old Marty the only monkey who can’t eat nuts!
