A humorous jungle adventure about a troop of mischievous monkeys who while helping a lost and rather noisy baby elephant named Peanut, to find his mamma, discover that elephants can climb trees. Even more surprising they discover that enormous hungry crocodiles can shimmy up a tree even faster than an elephant. The monkeys reunite Peanut with his mamma, while a crocodile wonders how he’s going to get down from the tall tree he’s just climbed.

About the Illustrator: Amy Calautti
From a young age Amy has loved to draw. She studied fashion and design the entire way through high school, along with any extra art units that were available. She then continued her study of fashion and textile design at Perth Central TAFE. After a 15 year gap, Amy picked up her pencils and rediscovered her love of drawing when she became a mother. She joined the 52 week Illustration Challenge and began to comprehend what her true potential could be. With her new found direction she became an active member in SCBWI, and participated in Nina Rycroft’s picture book illustration course in late 2017 and has been working on her portfolio ever since.
In late 2018, Amy began work on illustrating her first picture book, When the Moon is a Smile, written by Teena Raffa-Mulligan.
This will be Amy’s third commission with Little Pink Dog Books. Her first was Hector and his Highland Dancers published in Nov 2020, and her second was Mr Ming and the Mooncake Dragon to be published in June 2021.
Amy now lives with her small tribe of humans who bring her endless inspiration. If she’s not hunched over her drawing table, madly scribbling her marvellous creations, she is either cooking up a storm or hosting an extravagant pool party.
