From the Publisher

Suzanne Kaufman is a remarkable combination---a gifted writer, a brilliant illustrator and a wise, warm-hearted parent herself. No wonder she was able to create such a lovable character. But along with Monkey comes a wonderful message of encouragement and self-esteem - a message that our children simply cannot learn soon enough. Every child is a marvel - a unique and important individual with unlimited possibilities - but not every child believes it. It's up to us - parents, grandparents and teachers - to let our children know they are loved and treasured just as they are. That's what makes "I Love Monkey" so inspiring. Your family will treasure this magical story for years.

More About the Author


Suzanne Kaufman lives in Seattle with her husband, two monkeys, Eleanor and Katie, who sometimes pretend to be girls. Born in the Midwest, Suzanne grew up on healthy doses of Saturday morning cartoons and macaroni and cheese. She has been monkeying around with animation and illustration since she was little (that's her in the picture back in the 1970s!). Her style is inspired by lots and lots of monkeys and 1950s-era cartoons.

Suzanne knew early on that she wanted to work in animation. After college, she hopped in her car and headed off to Hollywood. On her way, her car broke down in Albuquerque, New Mexico. While waiting for the mechanic, she happened upon a special effects studio. Her curiosity got the best of her, and she went inside for a quick peek. The peek turned into a tour that turned into an interview that turned into a job that turned into a career.

Over the years, she's done everything from animating special effects for Universal and Discovery, to animating award-winning videogames. One of those games--Sly Cooper--won the Children's Title of the Year award. She currently teaches film and videogame animation. I Love Monkey is her first children's book. Stay tuned for more upcoming adventures starring Monkey.

My daughter received this book from my amazing aunt for Christmas (who always seems to find the coolest things for gifts!). I had never even seen the book or heard of the author, so I was excited to see if she would like it. Within a few days it became a favorite for bedtime, or really any time for that matter. The drawings are cute and make my 2 year old daughter laugh. The book is amazing quality and has withstood heavy use by a two year old! She is obsessed with monkeys and with every page we have come up with a sound effect to go with the page. She really enjoys "Monkey wanted to be Sushi, but it was too tasty!". After 6 months we still read it at least once a day and it rates up there with other well known titles in our collection (Click Clack Moo, Where the Wild Things Are, Llama, Llama collection... etc). I would recommend this book to anyone!

This has fast become one of my kid's favorites. The message is a good one, but not too cheesy. The high quality of the paper makes the funky artwork even more fabulous.

This is a beautifully illustrated book with a beautiful story! It is a perfect story for all of the little monkeys in your life! What better than a story that expresses how wonderful you are just - as - YOU! You may want to pretend to be many things, but overall you are perfect just as you are! A wonderful story for kids of all ages.

I have to heartily endorse this book. It is charming in presentation and message. Our daughter loves to have books read to her, and we have bought her a ton of books so far, but this is hands down one of her favorites. The message is really nice and humanistic too, perfect for a 2 year old child!

We love this book in our house. Our 3 year old daughter memorized the book after about a week and started "reading" it to us. Sweet story, colorful, playful illustrations and a wonderful message. I Love Monkey!

I bought this book after finding a Yoga lesson plan that utilized this book. I was pleasantly surprised with this book. I read the book to my students and, after each page/animal, they'd create a Yoga pose that, to them, represented that animal (I'd say, "Say Cheese", they'd repeat, and I'd say "Eyes closed and breath" and they'd hold the pose and focus on their breathing until I said "Click", representing a photo being taken, which is how we taught the "pose" concept.).

I also liked the message that no one can be YOU better than YOU. I will use this again w/my Kindergarteners during our Yoga unit.
