Swing through the Amazon jungle with author Lizzie Love the Clown's (aka: Lisabeth Reynolds) Sakiwinki the Monkey Saves the Animals. Lizzie Love the Clown lived among the animals and knows them well.
Illustrated by Lisa DiPetto, this colorful, new children's book takes kids ages three to seven into the exotic Amazon jungle where they follow Sakiwinki, a monk saki monkey, as he heroically rescues his missing girlfriend, Mini Marmoset.
Throughout his search, Sakiwinki encounters weird and wonderful animals and insects who assist him along the way. From a kinkajou and a sloth to leaf cutting ants and a jungle toad, these animals use their brains and physical abilities to help Sakiwinki find Mini Marmoset. Kids will have a blast diving into this one-of-a kind book. And, with the "jungle words" glossary, they'll learn even more about Amazon animals, plants, and insects!
