Richard Symes, a graduate of the Art Institute of Tampa, has completed his new book “Monkey Du”: a story designed to teach kids lessons that others have learned along the way. Through the story of a family of highly intelligent monkeys and their interactions with a human scientist who loves them dearly, kids will be inspired and motivated to love and allow themselves to be loved in return.

According to Symes, “The inspiration for this book came from watching (his) kids duplicate the scenarios created by the adults around them. Kids will copy anything and when they do, the results can be infuriating, hilarious, and heartwarming, like the interactions between the monkeys and the scientist in this story.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Richard Symes’s endearing tale will help teach children lessons that others have learned along the way while ultimately showing them how to love and accept love in return.

Readers who wish to experience this charming work can purchase“Monkey Du – Life is an Open Book” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Kobo, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
