Fun with words!

Our five little monkeys eat ice cream.

Lick, slurp, slop, drip, drop!

Then, of course, they find a mud puddle!

Slippy, sloppy, goopy, gloppy!

It’s not long before Mama has to march her icky, sticky, yucky, mucky monkeys into the bathtub. But the story and the silly words don’t end there!

What is an original board book?

I wrote this book especially for the board book format. It is 20 pages (shorter than the normal 32-page picture book) and geared towards very young readers.

The Illustrations:

I drew the illustrations on a Wacom Intuos tablet, using Photoshop CS4.
