Stories & story books have always been the best source of learning with fun for the kids. The characters, if defined properly, become their friends & they learn all the valuable things about life from such story books. Parents connect better with their kids by reading stories to them & find a way to inculcate good habits in them in a fun filled way. Author Helen H. Wu, has come up with a perfect story book collection gift for the kids called “Marcus The Monkey”, with a happy, lovable monkey ready to befriend the kids. She has started a crowd funding campaign to publish this book.

Reportedly, “Marcus The Monkey” is a collection of four original stories by Helen, illustrated in a beautiful manner. It’s a coffee table children’s picture book about a happy & adventurous monkey who loves to go out on adventures & learn new things. The stories are intended to be interesting, entertaining, full of humor as well as capable of forwarding good messages & warm values. The detailed presentation of the characters & a full color illustration makes every page very attractive & engaging.

This 160 page, full color kid’s picture book comes in a 9*12 Vertical Hardcover. The stories in it titled as “Good Night, Good Night” & “It’s Time To Eat” have earlier also been listed on Amazon & received really warm reviews & feedbacks from the parents. They have termed both of these books very entertaining, loving & helpful in teaching good sleeping & eating habits in their kids through their friend, Marcus, the monkey. The other two stories in this collection are, “Where Do They Go When It Rains” & “I Can Sleep Alone”. All four of these are Helen’s original work. This new collection has more refined version of these stories along with added detailed illustrations.

As reported, this book is a perfect gift from Helen to early readers, parents, teachers & educators& everyone else who appreciates family, friends, animals & nature. With this collection, readers also get original sketches of illustrations, tips of turning an idea into a picture book & much more.

She opened her own art studio & started illustrating children’s book in 2011. With this collection, she wishes to publish it on a larger scale & thus has started a fundraising campaign on “Kickstarter” & has offered rewards for the backers. She is positive about being backed up by the people in this endeavor of hers.

A Foggy Night

This sketch was inspired by Fenghuang Ancient City in China. I have been there about 5 years ago, when I was still in college. The beautiful scenery of clean river, narrow alleys paved with big chunk stones, special ancient wood buildings, tasty local food and restaurants, the peaceful little ancient town gave me so much memories to remember. I lived in a family inn (which is very common in Fenghuang) for 3 days, and after midnight when I peeked out of the window, I would see the scenery as in the drawing, most bars and restaurants closed, barely with several dim lights on, time to time one or two boats, or candles on little paper boats floating by, while the sound of running river filled the dark foggy night.
