Poor Monkey. All there is to eat on her little island are sour lemons. One day she spies a banana tree on a faraway island, but the only way to get to it is to navigate the crocodile-infested waters of the Sillabobble Sea. That’s no problem when you’re a brave and devious monkey who knows how to count to ten and back!
