Synopsis

Fall in love with Emily, an irresistible monkey with a taste for beignets and mischief, and Madame Dubois, the refined New Orleans matriarch who cares for her. The two spend their days shopping in the outdoor market, playing the piano, and painting pictures to decorate the house. Madame Dubois doesn't mind cleaning up when Emily paints on the wall with mustard, swings from a chandelier, or dumps over the garbage-until one day, when Emily Goes Wild! < /p>

Something profound changes in Emily that fateful day, and Madame Dubois must make a heartbreaking decision. Will Emily give up her fancy designer clothes, frilly French bedroom, and beignets at Café du Monde? Find out what happens in this heartwarming tale about a spirited little monkey named Emily who finds her wild side! < /p>
