Minkie Monkey lives with her family in a nest on a tree deep in the jungle. She is the biggest gossip in the whole forest. In fact, she is a big chatterbox. She chatters all the time—to the deer and the squirrel and the rabbits and the birds—and she knows all there is to know about everything in the jungle.

All the small animals like Minkie Monkey, but the tiger hates her! You know why? From her perch on the tree, Minkie can see far and wide and when she sees the tiger lurking about, looking for an animal to pounce on, she begins her chattering. Then the birds hear her and start squawking and soon all the animals know that the tiger is nearby and they run to safety. The poor tiger has to go hungry and start his hunt all over again!
