Count The Monkeys is my second book with the amazing Mac Barnett. It is a counting book, meaning it introduces children to numbers and such and so. And perhaps some adults who just haven't been paying attention for several decades.
Displayed here are several spreads from the book itself, as well as some of the concept art and roughs. I had to draw a lot of monkeys. More than the usual amount, which is probably three to four monkeys a day. I'm sure you average somewhere around there as well.
If you're interested in getting your own copy of Count The Monkeys, I have great news! They sell it in bookstores, or if you're lazy like me, you can get it on Amazon.com.
Kevin Cornell spends his days in Philadelphia, drawing made-up things. You know… like a “dog driving a bus”, or a “talking can of beets”. If you ever see a talking can of beets, tell Kevin. He's been trying to figure that one out for years.
If you have a book you want Kevin to illustrate, please get in touch with his agent, the distinguished Steve Malk. If you wish to contact Kevin because he's behind on his payments and you need to know where to send the next toe… hmmm… send that to his agent, too.
