Chris Monroe's books, including the follow-up Monkey with a Tool Belt and the Noisy Problem and Sneaky Sheep, are some of our favorites. And she's just up the road in Duluth.

Inspiration for the Netflix series Chico Bon Bon
Whether you need a beebersaw or a chisel, Chico Bon Bon's your monkey. He can build or fix just about anything--from a dock for the ducks to a clock for the Clucks, even a small roller coaster for local chipmunks. But will his tools and his sharp wit save him when an organ grinder sets his sights on making Chico a circus star? Chris Monroe's quirky hero and detailed illustrations will absorb readers in an entertaining adventure that shows there is an inventive way out of every problem--if you have the right tools.
