Two stories in one! Chunky Monkey Pupu thinks he is just like you, but is he really? He also thinks he looks just like you. What do you think?


Chunky Monkey Pupu is a children’s book from Sam Knight, one of the nicest human beings on this planet. He’s such a nice gentleman and he looks so dapper in his trademark Hawaiian shirts that he could convince Vogons to stop reading poetry.

Adults will look at this book and think the artwork was drawn by a kid. They might think that’s a bad thing.

It’s not.

I’ve seen this book read to little kids who sat still and belly-laughed at the story. It holds their attention, and the graphics captivate them. The title made the kids roar with laughter at “pupu”, but the person who was reading noted what “pupu” was…and no, it’s not poop. I was quite surprised at the positive reaction the children had. This would make a good bedtime book that will get the children sleeping with a smile, and it would make an excellent addition to a library that has readings for kids.
