Alex Rance, illustrated by Shane McG
AUD $19.99

The third Tiger & Friends picture book is an inspiring story about Howler Monkey from Tiger's Roar. Howler Monkey is the best at climbing trees until he injures his tail. A celebration of self-belief, family and caring for others by AFL Premiership player, Alex Rance, and talented children's book illustrator, Shane McG.

Howler Monkey was one of the best climbers in the whole jungle - until the day he landed on his tail with a big thump.

He kept smiling and playing with his friends, but on the inside he was very sad... What if he could never climb again?

Can Howler Monkey get his confidence back and reset his sense of self?

A gorgeous picture book about resilience and change, sharing worries and staying positive.
