    Monkton supplies another short story favorite

    Known for his optimistic and humorous shorts, Monkton has produced a variety of illustrated books that convey messages of peace, self-confidence, and maturity. Although not as catchy as Monkton's others works (Lovely Love Story; The Pig of Happiness) The Wonderful Man still promotes Monkton's messages in humorous pictures and endearing characters. Sure to be a coffee table faorite to provide a laugh or two. Definitely worth adding to one's Monkton collection.
