In the beautiful Animal Kingdom of E. George's Pass lives the very special Monkey family. One day, young Edward Monkey decides to visit his beloved Opa on his own. Though his mother gives him very specific instructions to stay on the path, Edward is soon wandering off in search of adventure.

When Edward gets lost, he decides not to be discouraged and ask for help. But the owl keeps asking "hoo" Edward is looking for, the hyena only laughs at him, and the parrot just repeats everything Edward says. Can Edward find his way to his Opa? If he remembers important lessons and doesn't give up, Edward can!

With fun animal sounds, The Adventures of Edward Monkey and His Opa is a story meant to be read aloud and shared. Edward Monkey is a bright and curious hero who will encourage conversations about determination and the importance of listening.
