Monkey Puzzle

Oh no! A little monkey has lost his mum… but Butterfly says she can find her. What does his mum look like? Well, she’s big… but not like an elephant! No – that big grey jumbo isn’t her! She clings to trees… but not like a snake. No, that slithery snake isn’t her! She lives in the trees, but she’s not a parrot. She leaps about, but she’s not a frog. Oh, what a muddle! Oh, what a puzzle! Will the monkey and Butterfly ever find her?
