Mr Monkey was told that the cottage was full of people, so he decided to have a look round the things outside the cottage first. He saw what looked like a grass hut, but turned out to be a willow cabin. The bench inside has buttons to press, if you want a famous actor to read out a sonnet. The he went to the Tree Garden, where they have examples of every tree mentioned in Shakespeare's plays. Mr Monkey was a mite vexed at the absence of bananas.
