There is a very cool group of monkeys that live in Manú National Park in Peru and renowned author/illustrator team, Melissa Stewart and Steve Jenkins, will showcase this amazing story for us. If you’ve seen their previous project, CAN AN AARDVARK BARK? (Beach Lane, 2017), you’ll know we’re all in for a treat. 

Andrea Welch at Beach Lane has acquired 14 Monkeys: A Rain Forest Rhyme by Melissa Stewart, illustrated by Steve Jenkins. The poetic nonfiction picture book showcases the amazing group of monkeys that inhabit Manú National Park in Peru. Publication is slated for Summer 2021; Tricia Lawrence at Erin Murphy Literary sold World rights on behalf of the author; the illustrator represented himself. 

I can’t wait for this! 

Congratulations, Melissa and Steve!
