The circus has come to town. But it's no ordinary circus, it's Monty's Marvellous Monkey Circus and all the performers are monkeys! All the kids from Budsville are really excited, except for Alfie who suspects all is not what it seems ...
Joe O'Brien lives in Ballyfermot in Dublin with his wife and children. He is the author of nine books featuring Alfie Green, a boy who can talk to plants. For older readers he has written three books about Danny Wilde and his Littlestown Crokes GAA team, Legends' Lair (about Charlie Stubbs and his dreams of becoming a soccer player) and one fantasy novel, Beyond the Cherry Tree. He has appeared on RTE's The Den, TV3's Ireland AM and many radio shows. He regularly holds readings in bookshops and libraries around the country.
A cheerful, easy read for children aged seven-plus.
For the newly-confident reader Alfie Green and the Monkey Puzzler is an entertaining story of intrigue and comeuppance.
Joe O’Brien visited my daughter’s school and got her really hooked on reading for the first time. She’s read all the Alfie Green titles so far, so is eagerly awaiting the next one to bring on her summer holidays.
