This fun-filled adventure follows Murray the Mailmonkey on his mission to bring the exciting news of an epic talent contest to the village of Animalzoos. Murray learns that everyone has a gift worth celebrating. A talent can be juggling, singing, baking, carving, dancing, or a bazillion other things, and Murray’s own talent is the most surprising of all!

This story celebrates the talents that create the fabric of life. It also emphasizes the connection we can share through communication. As easy as it is to send an email, text, or post, nothing lights up a child’s face more than getting a card in the mail! Readers will run to the mailbox and be inspired to send mail to the special people in their lives.

Josh Merchant

Josh Merchant has always been an author/illustrator at heart, but not one in trade until recently. Josh grew up on small town sensibility in Delano, Minnesota. Josh attended Bemidji State University, and later moved to the Fargo/Moorhead area to complete his degree in International Business at Moorhead State. After graduation, he received an invitation to Guangzhou, China, where he taught an amazingly fun bunch of first- and second-graders while receiving Chinese tutoring. He also acted in Chinese commercials, a mini-series, and was featured on several billboards and catalogs. There he learned he was better at illustration than acting. Josh currently lives in beautiful Victoria, Minnesota, with his really cool wife and amazing kiddo, Rissa (a.k.a. Roo).
