Monkey of the MonthMonkey of the Month is written by Adam Kramer and illustrated by David Kramer. Published by Schiffer Publishing Ltd.

This is a rhyming book about a boy that gets a present from the Monkey of the Month Club. Each month comes with a new monkey and a new adventure. Although we only get to see about 8 monkeys in all (I was a bit disappointed that the author could not give us all 12 months of monkeys) before the mother sends the monkeys away. But I guess it is surprising that his mother could put up with 8 months of monkeys!

There’s no moral to the story accept perhaps to adults to be careful what you gofts you give to kids on their birthdays. It might be best to check with Mom first.

Overall this book has a cute story with nicely done illustrations.

Book Description

Bored with mundane birthday gifts, a young boy unexpectedly receives a most peculiar gift on his birthday: a one year-membership to the “Monkey of the Month Club.” Though pleased it isn’t just a pair of socks, he is very confused by this odd gift, until, month-by-month, monkeys and their primate cousins start appearing at his door. As the year moves on, his house becomes full of chimpanzees, orangutans, gorillas, and more, who begin turning his house into their own private playground. While a house full of monkeys, all unique in their own way, sounds like a lot of fun, membership in the “Monkey of the Month Club” does have some drawbacks. Find out what happens in this exciting and humorous adventure accompanied by bright illustrations. Grades Pre-K-3.

Adam Kramer is thrilled to enter the field of children’s books. When he’s not writing, he might be found catching a baseball game with his wife Lena. Stemming from his love of cartooning, David Kramer’s whimsical, animated characters reflect his love of storytelling and a creative imagination.

I just got a chance to try out the Sticky Buddy and while I am skeptical of ALL As Seen On TV products, I was pleasantly surprised by this one.

The Sticky Buddy quickly and easily removed all cat hair left by my three kitties on their favorite sleeping spots.

It was super easy to clean (just run it under warm water and rub the crud away)  and it was ready to use again after only a few quick shakes to get the water off.

No more buy adhesive hair removers to clog up landfills. Sticky Buddy does the job and comes back for more!

But wait! You also get a travel size Sticky Buddy with your purchase.

A friend of mine lost her house this week. She, her husband and her pets all got out safely. Fire really scares me  and this got me thinking about how quickly we could get the cats out of the house if this happened here.

We will be setting up an emergency kitty kit  and getting a plan of action in place ASAP!

I just hope in case of a fire that the fumes from all the LEGO and Star Trek toys doesn’t kill us first.

Boris’ twitter “anipals” set up a chip-in for donations to help both Sebastian and another cat, CJ, who was burnt in the fire.

If you can please consider a donation. We sent both cash through the chip-in (thanks to recent LEGO sales I made over at Bricklink.com) and boxes of cat toys to both kitties.

Boris was a rescue, but not your typical adoption. We actually adopted Boris before his furry little butt ever went to the humane society. We already had it in mind to adopt our next cat, but weren’t ready to do it just yet when he showed up on our doorstep.  Quite literally. One of our neighbors [...]

It really isn’t just a self-aggrandizing name, it really is the World’s Best Cat Litter. I won a bag in a contest on Twitter and tried it out on our cats and I just loved it and so did the cats. It is almost dustless, which was so nice when filling the box. No cloud [...]
