Christina Genth born and raised in the small town of Decatur, Indiana, she followed her desire to be creative and to further her artistic talent. Her journey took her to the Savannah College of Art and Design, where she graduated with a B.F.A. in Illustration. It was in Savannah where she crossed paths with the talented author of The Messy Monkey Tea Party, along with her wonderful family. Christina intends to continue to explore her love of illustrating, and will soon be writing many more silly and humorous children’s books!
Cheri Bivin Deich presently lives in Savannah, Georgia with her husband Matt, their three children Gabriella, Jonah, Chloe and their three dogs, Cheyenne, Sundae and Frisco. She has enjoyed working with children as a pediatric nurse in the emergency room, with patients in intensive care, and was also a flight care nurse. The Messy Monkey Tea Party is her first children's book to be published. Currently, she is working on three new children's books with the help of her talented staff of writers and artists.
The debut children's book of pediatric nurse Cheri Bivin Deich, The Messy Monkey Tea Party is a humorous picturebook about a young girl who has the exciting idea of inviting all sorts of animals to tea. But each animal encounters its own quirky difficulties at teatime, and the monkeys leave the biggest mess of all! "They swung from the trees and tossed dishes around / And were making a constant, low chattering sound. // They threw their cake and their cookies this way and that / Then plopped in a chair and finally sat. // The monkeys began tying napkins in knots / On their heads they balanced cups and tea pots." The colorful and exaggerated illustrations add the perfect visual touch to this playful children's book. --Children's Bookwatch (Midwest Book Review), April 2007
The Messy Monkey Tea Party offers a riotous look at what would happen if you invited animals to tea. Berserking alligators, bad smelling hippos, and an ostrich too shy to take its head out of the sandbox all stop by for tea. When the monkeys show up, five all wearing one dress, the mayhem caused by the other animals escalates to complete pandemonium. The little girl who started it all by sending an invitation to the zoo sends them all packing and, having cleaned up the mess, concludes there's a reason you don't ask animals to tea. This rowdy story is complemented perfectly by the rambunctious colors and patterns of the illustrations. They tell the story to such an extent that children will be able to "read" the book on their own and tell the story after a parent has read it to them once. --ChildrensPictureBook.info (May 2007)
