Doctor Monkey by Felix Hayes and Hannah Broadway (Bloomsbury, £5.99)
When Robot goes down with a serious dose of the sniffles, his friend Monkey greets the news with relish. The reason? He fancies himself as a medic who can soothe his Robot friend’s ills. Armed with a thermometer, hot-water bottle and a rather bossy bedside manner, Monkey soon has the poorly patient consigned to bed rest – and Robot is soon very bored. This is a playful tale of friendship give- and-take with lively images and some fun press-out play figures.
