We got the choo choo all the way up to Scotland – showed our monkey passports to the nice man on the train who looked at them strangely then at us even more strangely – tsk tsk I think its because I’ve had my hair cut since my passport pic was taken. Anyway, we had a fab time on the train…choo choooooo

Choo choooo

Choo choooo

 

 

Then we sneaked into the festival! We weren’t sure if monkeys would be allowed in but those lovely people at Edinburgh book festival said we were more than welcome. Isn’t that nice? They are so lovely those nice Ed book fest people – they gave us a lovely drink – which we took back to our hotel (Monkey HQ whilst in Edinburgh) . This is now where monkey sits and reads his books – at the festival for the humans they have human sized chairs ready for people to sit in them and read. Monkey has been rather clever here I think and created a book chair himself.

We also picked up one of these fine things – to humans a bag – to us monkeys, a monkey carrier. We have our own but can also be found to be catching a lift in any one of the zillions of bags floating around the festival. Its a proper monkey transportation system!

Please don’t be alarmed if you find us in there or if monkey has left a little pressie behind (whoops).  We just skip out and we’re soon on our way.

 

We’ve seen a few lovely people who read us stories. We sit at the front cos we’re only small. But we saw the Gruffalo lady (Mrs Gruffalo?) and she seemed a bit surprised to see talking monkeys.  I said well you’re the lady who has met a gruffalo, I didn’t think a talking monkey would be such a surprise. She said I was a clever monkey and I kissed her on the cheek, said Aaaye and then skipped off. I thought I would maybe dress like a Gruffalo the next time so she is not so shocked. What do you think……?

whey hey!! We have so many lovely people we want to see. There are lovely people up here up know. OOh there are lots of little kiddies running around with sweets and icecreams so we make friends with those that have food teehee. We love making friends and whizzing around all the tents to meet the nice writer people. People who write books are very clever. They know so many words! I have lots of writer people to meet so must dash. See you soon monkey fans xxxx
