"Tombo sees a tiny face snuggled up to his mother! The new baby monkey opens her eyes and looks at him just before his mother pushes him gently but firmly away."

The arrival of a new baby is exciting, but it also changes family dynamics forever. In this endearing true-to-life story, we meet Tombo, a young Japanese macaque, who lives with his mother, sister, and extended family near Japan's Awaji Island Monkey Center. Primatologist Sarah Turner's deep respect for her subjects and her sparkling photographs illuminate this universal tale of growing up, moving over, and finding our way in the world.

"This book could complement studies of animal behaviour and wildlife conservation...[or] in social studies, in studying family relationships, roles and changes, students could compare similarities and differences between monkey and human families...I highly recommend The Littlest Monkey as it has many possible applications in the classroom."
CM Magazine - September 15, 2010
"First-hand research, an appealing setting, first-rate photography and the desire to bring a universal message to young readers: this winning combination led to primatologist Sarah Turner's creation of a delightful picture book…This charming story will satisfy the reader's need for both knowledge and a comforting message…Highly Recommended."
