Each book contains 40 pages and includes tips to adults of how to use the stories and illustrations when talking to children about emotional disorders and mental illness. The books are:
1. Kailee Finds the Dragon
2. A Monkey on Ken's Back
3. Ami is Not a Monster
4. Shawn's Jetpack

“Andy writes with sensitivity and the wisdom of experience. This book series is sure to be a valuable resource in helping parents talk to children about mental illness and emotional disorders.”

—Marty Mendenhall, PhD, Psychologist

“These books are well done and heartfelt. They are exactly what we need. This is a great way to begin discussing the topic of emotional disorders or mental illness, and reducing stigma at even very young ages. We are lucky to have these resources available to us.”

—Kristal James, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor

“‘Emotional disorders’ can be a difficult topic, perhaps especially for children. There is a lack of resources to help children understand, on their developmental level, what is happening in their lives. These books take an important first step in that direction. Andy uses a creative and fun approach to reach young people and these books will be of great help to many families!”

—Michael Negrette, LMFT, Marriage and Family Therapist

“I was first introduced to Andy Hogan’s book A Monkey on Ken’s Back by my three-year-old grandson, who had it at home and wanted me to read it to him. It turns out it’s one of his favorites. It’s a delightful book with whimsical illustrations that prompted a discussion of how it feels when things aren’t going right. Getting a three-year-old to talk about difficult feelings is priceless.”

—Sabine Weil, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor
