Meet Katie Farrar, author of The Adventures of Monkey the Cat.
The Adventures of Monkey the Cat
he Adventures of Monkey the Cat are a series of children's books developed to encourage and entertain children newborn through toddler years. They are centered on the story of a curious orange cat named Monkey who, in the first book, discovers himself on an island in New England where he explores and interacts with the local island animals and finally discovers where he belongs. Children will enjoy the hilarious interplay and colorful sound words of Monkey's experience while discovering for themselves the world he lives in through the original watercolor paintings that fill each book.
"The Adventures of Monkey the Cat series started in 2012 after my husband and I lost our first sweet cat to feline leukemia. His life was filled with loving curiosity which I felt was something that I wanted to remember always, and share with others if I could. Monkey helped my husband and I through our first year of marriage and shared our first adventures in a new home, in a new state!
After Monkey’s passing, my husband and I took a long vacation on an island off the coast of Maine. We took that time to heal and reminisce about Monkey and how much he would have loved to explore this unique place! Thus, the story of Monkey’s home on the island was born.
These joy-filled books will follow Monkey as his adventures on the island grow and change throughout the seasons. Hopefully, you and your little readers will explore and grow with Monkey as you relate to your surroundings in a new way!
Monkey encourages everyone to find time to play!"
