The fun-filled illustrated kids’ book delighting youngsters this festive season
The charmingly-written and beautifully-illustrated ‘A Monkey Christmas’ is the sophomore novel from children’s author Michael Rohr, released by Enchanted Forest Publishing
A lovable, cheeky new kids’ character is swinging into bookshelves this festive season – as ‘Monkey’ embarks on a magical winter adventure.
The novel’s brave young hero, Monkey, wakes up on an ordinary Christmas morning to find a less-than-impressive present tally under the tree. However, his initial disappointment turns to excitement as he is pulled into a journey that teaches him the true meaning of Christmas.
Imaginative, light-hearted and funny, A Monkey Christmas serves as a sequel to Rohr’s acclaimed debut Cowboy Monkey Talks Fluff. Like the first book, it stars the eponymous Monkey – a character inspired by a blue and green plush monkey toy belonging to Rohr’s son.
Enchanted Forest Publishing founder Lorna Child said: “Michael originally submitted the book as a short story, but we realised it would actually be ideal as a children’s Christmas book.
“Michael is a family man who knows what children like to read and what stories they find exciting.
“A Monkey Christmas is written in a way that makes reading fun and the sketches are incredible. It’s a story that explores something kids love – every child wants to meet Santa – and we also really liked the use of rhyming.
“The book is a lovely feel-good Christmas story filled with lovely characters that people can share with their children.”
A Christmas Monkey is due for publication on Wednesday 24 November and will be available on Kindle and in paperback format in book stores right across the UK.
A special edition hardback book with colouring-in pages is also being released.
