Kai and the Monkey King Summary

Kai and the Monkey King by Joe Todd Stanton

When Kai grows tired of her bookish mum not being adventurous enough for a Brownstone, she decides to seek out the mischievous and rebellious Monkey King - who she's always been told to stay away from. Will he bring her the adventure she craves, or will he cause her more trouble than he's worth? Read the latest story from the mythical Brownstone's family vault where we venture to China and learn about the story of the Monkey King, meet magical gods, taste powerful peaches and see that maybe our heroes aren't always what they're cracked up to be. Winner of the 2018 Waterstones Children's Book Prize, longlisted for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal, and most recently nominated for an Eisner for Arthur and the Golden Rope, Joe Todd-Stanton is a master at storytelling and illustration, and this time he takes his history loving adventurer deep into Chinese mythology.

Kai and the Monkey King Reviews

Dynamic,full-page artwork, bursting with action and peril, combines superbly with constrained vignettes that slow the pace and portray the scale of Kai's arduous journey. * BookTrust *
At its heart, though, is a tale with a moral; one that recreates the essence of the parent-child bond and its intricacies in an endearing and engaging manner. Those ever alluring character and environment designs are a testament to Todd-Stanton's world-building imagination * Broken Frontier *
Truly lovingly produced and crafted. * Read It Daddy's Picture Book of the Week *
Highly recommend picking this up for any children who love adventure, mythology, and a brave, young heroine. The added messages of patience and other valuable lessons are a bonus. * Olivia Farr, YA Books Central *
