Text and Images from the book

Always be the best person you can.

monkey travelsThis was a morning like no other.

Monkey was relaxing on the beach in the arms of his family. The soft sun rays were tickling his little face, as the gentle wind blew.

He felt very special as he quietly whispered to the sea. He said, “I know what I want, I can feel it and I will go and find it.” The Sea said, “Yes, you are very special Monkey, go and find your special gifts.”

Back at home, with his pure heart, he was the best Monkey he could be.

Around his house and garden, he believed it was a honey colored castle, with a beautiful flowering forest.

He zipped around and played and set off on his garden travels, ready for new adventures to explore.

Be positive in all you do.

Monkey had a small bag of cheerful looking clothes, funny toys and, of course, his green toothbrush to take with him.

He also had his big smiley face as he went to find and create new games. He was his own leader.

He wanted to learn, work well and share his kindness wherever he went and most importantly, to laugh loudly on his way.
