Messy Monkeys is a book about the feelings that get in the way, disturb, distract, and frustrate a small child named Macy. Throughout Macy's day we learn the techniques she uses to calm these emotions that are represented as many, many Messy Monkeys. 

This is a book that's not only playful and fun, it's a helpful guide to both children and parents struggling with the noises in their heads. It's a gentle hand in a sea of chaos that many will find useful, and an important message about the mental health of children.
