About the Author:

Matthew Porter is an Englishman abroad. Originally from a tiny village in the south of England he now reside across the pond in the lovely city of Seattle. A children's book illustrator and author his stories and imagery present the perfect balance of nostalgia with modern elegance. Matthew's illustrations are hand drawn and painted on wood. Then lightly sanded so some of the grain shows through. This gives them a worn folk art aesthetic. Matthew has been called the undisputed king of the hipster board book genre. Find out more at matthewporterart.com 

Review:

"Porter's characters from The Thunderbolt Express (2013) return in this tale of monkey mystery and malfeasance. The current tale parallels the previous in that this too includes a crocodile-infested river (well, a jazz band of crocodiles). Back too are Porter's big-eyed monkeys in their spiffy suits and disguises featured in brightly colored, full-bleed illustrations painted on pine. A fine first caper for budding fans of mystery, monkeys, or magic."
—Kirkus Reviews
