Melvin is certain he’s the unluckiest monkey in the world. He’s run out of bananas, thinks he has a terrible disease, and decides nobody can help, not even his best friend Pete. What ensues is a tale of true friendship and the importance of making your own luck. Illustrated in wonderful line-drawn and colour pictures, Claudia Boldt creates a unique cast of characters in this humorous and sweet story.
Claudia Boldt is a young German illustrator based in London. She attended the Glasgow school of Art, and then Kingston University, London, where she graduated with her Masters in Illustration in 2007 - the same year she founded Cloud Cuckoo studio with fellow illustrator Katharina Koall in London's East End. Claudia was a winner of the Booktrust Best New Illustrators Award in 2011. This is her third book for children.
Working in a palette of creamy pastel colors, Boldt (Odd Dog) creates charming city scenes filled with adorable boutiques and markets bursting with produce and fish—just one more thing Melvin takes for granted.
