About the Authors

Jennie McClain lives in southeastern Idaho with her husband and
their many monkeys. The various activities involved with raising
monkeys keep Jennie busy most of the time. When she has time
for herself, she most enjoys getting lost in a good book. Jennie loves
cooking for friends and family, especially if someone else does the
dishes. She is happiest spending time with the people she loves, especially
her family.

Jennifer Eichelberger graduated from Brigham Young University with a bachelor of fine arts in illustration. She lives with her husband and little daughter in Utah, where they all act like monkeys half of the time. All three of them love bananas.

My son is 2 years old. We have been working on teaching him to be calm and reverent at church (a difficult task). This book has been a great help. We read it every night at bed, he loves the animals! On Saturday night while we read we lay out his "best pants, shirt, shoes and tie", he knows in the morning we will be going to church. The only part I change is the ending I tell him he wears a tie just like daddy. We still struggle with being calm for a whole hour, however he folds him arms and walks soft. He even stopped the older kids the other day from running and told them "no running, walk church". I suggest this book to any mother who has a monkey just like mine!

Wonderfully written and beautifully illustrated!

Thank you Jennie and Jennifer for sharing your talents and inspiration with us! This book is a wonderful addition to our library and one that we will enjoy for many years!
