Monkey and the Mystery of the Missing Whale Jaw
A Dark Monkey Tale
by Ian Emerson

While on the train home from Edinburgh, Monkey reads a strange article in the paper that describes the disappearance of the famous whale jaw from the top of Berwick Law in North Berwick. That weekend he and his adopted parents, Ian and Doreen, set off for the coast on a trip that will lead Monkey into extreme danger but reveal what has happened to his real parents...

Staying in the picturesque seaside town of Gullane, Ian takes Monkey to see Concorde at the nearby East Fortune air museum where they learn that a very large exhibit has been stolen. That evening, they see on TV that the missing whale jaw has now been replaced. Monkey is now extremely suspicious: a missing whale jaw that has suddenly been replaced and a stolen rocket from the nearby air museum? Micro-lights flying all over the place add to the fact that something extremely mysterious is underfoot. Monkey sets off to investigate – only to end up in mortal danger from forces that are set on using him in an absurd experiment. What is hidden inside the lighthouse on an island in the middle of the River Forth? What will Monkey find that will make his dreams come true but hurl him into a nightmare situation... and who are the Bad Scientists?

Monkey and the Mystery of the Missing Whale Jaw is the third book in the A Dark Monkey Tale series. It will appeal to children from 5-10 years.
