Deep in the rainforest, all is peaceful, all is calm… Until Speedy Monkey comes along!
Whoo-hooo! We loved working on this book – we love the character, we love the settings, we love the story! And we had the best time working with designer Sara Mognol and Art Director Paul Coomey at Stripes Publishing (part of the Little Tiger Group). Stripes and award-winning author Jeanne Willis gave us the freedom us to dive straight in – full colour, full page art right from the start – what a great adventure! Speedy Monkey capered joyfully and almost effortlessly into being – we couldn’t wait to get to our desks every day and spend time with this delightful cast of characters in the exotic rainforest. We could really relate to Speedy (we’re both born in the Chinese Year of the Monkey, after all) and we delighted in researching cashew nut trees, kinkajous and skinks. Summed up as ‘an energetic story about being yourself’ – it doesn’t get much better than that!
