Book three in a three book series of health adventures for readers 7-11. Grub is the messiest kid on the block. His hair is one big tangle, his clothes are covered with blotches and stains and his room looks like something exploded in it! It's going to take some drastic action - like an exploration through Mr. Picadilly's mouth or an encounter with giant body bugs - to get him to clean up his act. And Grub will need your help cracking codes, deciphering devious word scrambles and hunting down the stinkies hidden throughout this book!

We'd like to share some of the positive responses to the Five Kids & A Monkey series that we have received here at the offices of The Creative Attic Inc.:
"(Five Kids & A Monkey books) fill a health void most delightfully and are sure to please the elementary-age student. You have been able to make understandable seemingly difficult topics such as good hygiene, proper nutrition, and infectious diseases. May I congratulate you...on creating a set of books that will be best sellers with students and parents alike." (Shirley M.R. Minster, MS Ed., Director, Home Education & Family Services, Gray, Maine)
"The Five Kids & A Monkey learning adventures are a fun way for young readers to learn serious information. Not only is the lighthearted approach appealing, the humor helps them retain the content longer." (Dottie Bengoian, Educator, Motivational Speaker, Humorist, Fairfield, CT)
"Lurking in every kid is a wish to play detective. When that can be combined with learning about health, this series...is a winner! Parents, teachers and great-grandparents like us can play, too!" (Ross and MaryLou Callaway, "Senior Voices" columnists, The Oakland Press, Pontiac, MI)From the Author:
As a kid, it seemed that every time I turned around someone was telling me to scrub under my nails, brush my teeth or go outside and "get some exercise". I'm sure I understood the reasons all that was important, but going through the 'clean routine' certainly didn't seem as if it was worth the time it took. I mean, if I scrubbed the germs off my hands in the morning, how many could possibly come back by dinnertime? And "exercise", in my mind, was just the boring stuff we had to do during gym class. Hopefully, the Five Kids & A Monkey(tm) books will get today's kids more enthusiastic about taking care of themselves than I was! Illustrator Beth Blair and I worked for over a year to get just the right mix of humor, fun and games - and health information, of course - into each book. Beth is a whiz at taking a fact and making it funny, and her illustrations are always witty (and sometimes pretty silly as well). One of my favorites is in Five Kids & A Monkey(tm) Solve the Great Cupcake Caper. The Kids are checking out Munchie's kitchen, trying to figure out what he had for breakfast by searching for his sticky chocolate fingerprints...and finding them tells the Kids quite a bit about Munchie's poor eating habits. The hidden words and pictures that Beth has cleverly concealed in each of the books will give you a good laugh, too - just how many of Grub's buttons or Dr. Harris Tweed's pink glasses can you find? Besides the riddles and games, each book has plenty of activities in the back, so there's fun stuff to do after reading, alone or with a group! Please let us know what you think about the books - we'd love to hear from you!
