Overview

"Thousands of people throughout the USA hold a special place for their wistful buddies of yesteryear. The sock monkey . . . graced many a bed and toy box during the Depression and the years that followed. Today there are Web sites for vintage collectors, chat rooms for purists, and a plethora of directions on how to craft the creatures." --Sawyer County Record

Something intrinsic about a red-heel sock monkey speaks to people. How else could a homemade stuffed monkey, crafted from a pair of ordinary work socks, remain a part of the American scene decades after the whimsical doll first scampered into our hearts? 

Monkey Love celebrates our love affair with this smiling little character and honors the affection people have for their past and the devotion people share with others today. In this lovable volume, photographs by Dee Lindner, aka the Sock Monkey Lady, include images of sock monkeys appearing in everything from their traditional stocking caps to snorkeling gear. Tying this little book all together is a simply worded ode to what love is and what makes love so special.

This combination of love and sock monkeys could not be warmer or fuzzier. Monkey Love will have lovers of all ages and lovers of toys--toy monkeys, in particular--going bananas over a copy. The book is an ideal keepsake, whether purchased for yourself or as a gift to the loved one or ones in your life.
