The Adventures of Gracie & Monkeybear, Book 1: Summer

The Adventures of Gracie & Monkeybear, Book 1: Summer
Gracie & MonkeyBear is told through the actions and conversations between a brilliant young girl and her partner in adventure, the most celebrated canine inventor the world has ever seen MonkeyBear! The pace is that of children, hopping and bouncing from one creative thought to the next, one adventure to another. This is not a traditional children's book, it is a storyworld meant to be read and experienced together, parent and child, veteran bookworms with new readers. At its core, The Adventures of Gracie & MonkeyBear embodies the concepts of relentless curiosity, untethered imagination, power of diverse friendships and experiences (like the world around us), heroic acts of kindness based on strength of character and most of all, the belief that all living things are connected and should be treated with love, compassion, and respect.

But the scatter-brained professor behind the research is unaware of a sinister plan - to use his upgraded baboons as weapons of war. Luckily, his pet project, two Airedale Terriers with near-human intelligence, have a nose for danger.
