Back to School with Chirp Magazine

Chirp magazine Sept. issue



Marvin’s Monkey Bars


The “Everybody Bars”

Chirp, Owlkids’ magazine for 3- to 6-year-olds, commissioned me to illustrate the cute story “Marvin’s Monkey Bars” for their September issue. Marvin the monkey thinks the monkey bars should be ONLY for monkeys (i.e., himself, as he seems to be the only monkey at this school) – hence the name. But after a little solo time on “his” bars, he realizes playtime is more fun with friends, and decides to call his favourite part of the playground the “everybody bars”! An important lesson – everyone belongs – learned early on by most, but sadly not all, kids.
