About

The HAPPY MONKEY is almost finished, we just need to finalize artwork for additional pages and adjust for formatting the new size. 

 It has been an amazing journey and we are excited for this next step!

 The Happy Monkey is a story of a young monkey living in the rainforest.  He has friends, family and a wonderful playground in the trees.  One day he wakes up and to his surprise all of the trees in the forest are gone!  

This made the Monkey very sad and he decides to embark on an adventure to find out what happened to his trees.  He travels far and wide until he runs into...  well you will have to read the book to get the rest of the story.  I don't want to ruin it for you :).  

We have produced a digital version of Happy Monkey , now we are excited for you to be a part of creating hardback and soft back versions to share the Happy Monkey's story with the world and hopefully bring awareness to deforestation in our rainforests.  Every year since Happy Monkey has been created we travel to central and coastal Oregon to plant trees in deforested areas.  Companies are starting to become more aware of the long term affect of this process but they still need groups like us to "remind" them how to restore the trees! Be a part of our journey, help us and Happy Monkey bring his story to the world!

 

Risks and challenges

We are fully committed to creating a high quality, full color Children's picture book. The project is about halfway there in production so we are well on our way to completion. We are self publishing so as soon as we are 100% backed we can continue production and get our books to print. Please email me with any questions you may have. We look forward to telling the story of the Happy Monkey to the world! Thank you!
