Trixy The Monkey Who Ate Nevis by Jo-Ann Mason is a humorous tale about an overindulging monkey named Trixy and the trouble she faces when she choose not to listen.
Trixy is a young Vervet monkey who lives on the island of Nevis. She loves to play games and have fun with her friends. An active growing monkey, Trixy is always hungry. Due to the dangers baby monkeys face their mothers gather food while they hide in the safety of the trees. Trixy, who thinks she can do things on her own, often ventures out to gather food. She is always careful to return before the mothers so she can enjoy double the food. Her friend Pete tries to warn her about sneaking off and notices she is getting a little pudgy, but Trixy just thinks he is being silly. Will Trixy learn to listen before disaster strikes?
Trixy The Monkey Who Ate Nevis is filled with delightful illustrations that depict the beauty of Nevis and the fun loving monkeys who inhabit it.
Children will be amused by Trixy's escapades, but they will also learn the importance of following the rules and how greed clouds judgement. The story includes a map of The Caribbean showing the Island of Nevis as well as interesting facts about Vervet monkeys.
