Another Gem by JemsBooks. "Sebastian Meets Marvin the Monkey" is an fun tale written by award-winning children's author Janice Spina and illustrated by her talented husband, John Spina, that entertains children and teaches them the value of respect for others, including animals. Go along with Sebastian to the zoo and learn how his love and consideration for the monkeys spread happiness all around. Highly recommended.
