I Am a Sensible Gibbon by Will Mabbitt & Claudia Boldt

Published by Hodder Children’s Books, an imprint of Hachette Children’s Group, 2021.

Gibbon would like to make it very clear that this is a sensible book for sensible people. Anything that looks like it might be FUN or SILLY is absolutely forbidden. He has a clipboard with a checklist of all the things he just won’t tolerate, from unbusy bees to folk-dancing rabbits and baboons with balloons. And not forgetting bare bears:

I mean, really! At the very least put some pants on…

I Am a Sensible Gibbon is such a funny book. It’s full of silly wordplay, animals clowning around and an increasingly frazzled gibbon. The brightly coloured zany illustrations perfectly capture all the madcap antics and add another layer of fun.

Rating: 💙💙💙💙

Suitable for children aged 4+

Thank you to Hachette Children’s Group for sending me this book to review.
