As her life was happening, artist Shirley Van Dusen wrote down her observations and insights. The Mother’s Day Monkey is a collection of a lifetime’s worth of the often hilarious adventures ─ and misadventures ─ of Shirley and the rest of the Van Dusen family. Along with husband, Tom, there are seven children and a menagerie of cats, dogs, chickens ─ and even a monkey and a sheep ─ to provide the day-to-day loud moments.
You will howl with laughter as you read about Shirley’s attempts to solve the cold-case chicken caper, and Tom’s desperate attempts to save his wife and children from a cow “attack.”
The Mother’s Day Monkey reminds us all that a generous dose of humour, along with kindness and love, goes a long way to smoothing out life’s unexpected challenges.
