Reviews

"...reminded me of the children's books I read growing up--simple, full of fun characters, rhymes, and just "happy." The philosophical insights inherent in the stories are great and can be beneficial for kids, especially in today's world. The end result is just fun, satisfying, and thoroughly enjoyable for both kids and adults." (5 out of 5 stars) Readers' Favorite

"Within the whimsical tales, Reedy broaches substantive matters that equally concern youth and adults, including the appropriate role of technology, the quest for perfection, and the need to embrace one's own individuality. While the stories raise complex issues, their tone calms rather than alarms as the children make sense of their world and their place in it... Overall, readers will find this an entertaining collection of empowering children's tales--one that is sure to enrich family storytime." Blue Ink Review

"Readers will be shocked, surprised and thrilled as they turn the pages of these short, but thoroughly engrossing, tales...the stories encourage children to be themselves and to dream and sing and enjoy the pleasures of childhood... sure to please even the most reluctant readers with its fast-paced prose, interspersed poetry and detailed illustrations." The Children's Book Review

"There's a refreshing maturity to Reedy's stories. He's not talking down to children, or underestimating their powers of comprehension, yet the stories never lose their core accessibility and playfulness. Overall, More Tales for Your Monkey's Mind will have kids laughing and intrigued by these uniquely imaginative stories. Reedy has an inspiring vision for this work, and the obvious passion and talent put into this book result in an electric work of children's fiction, which can inspire kids to read, or even be more creative themselves." (4.5 out of 5 stars) SPR Review

"These fables are designed to help children make sense of the world around them and do so in a quaint, charming, and soothing way ...these are tales that adults will enjoy reading as much as their children will enjoy listening to... these tales would work well in a classroom to spark conversation about the problems children might face and possible solutions to them. Using surprising elements like pink bunny bullies makes it easier for kids to look at real-world problems in a more objective way and talk to adults about them."
