Random House Options Monkey Nuts
Monkey Nuts is a vibrantly illustrated, slapstick action comedy series set on the Isla de Monstera, home of the world's only tap-dancing, banana-loving, rust-fighting, coconut-talking, crime-busting organisation. This latest project comes to RHCSE from the DFC Library at RHCP.
Monkey Nuts is written and illustrated by Robin and Lawrence Etherington, British comic creators who work together as The Etherington Brothers. They are also the creators of Malcolm Magic, Baggage and Long Gone Don.
Andrew Cole-Bulgin, Partner and Head of Film & TV, RHCSE comments “Monkey Nuts, is a fantastically fun-filled property with richly detailed characters that will directly appeal to boys 8-12 years of age. It’s a wonderful series and the action-packed comedy storylines will doubtless sweep children along with each adventure.”
Robin Etherington, author, comments “We created Monkey Nuts for boys who were not only looking for engaging stories but, more importantly, wanted their reading experience to be both funny and fun. There has always been a significant gap in the kid’s market for humour, and the same dearth of great comedy exists in the world of cartoons. We’re therefore delighted to have the opportunity to widen the Monkey Nuts brand with RHCSE and Komixx. The team at Komixx share our passion and commitment both to the quality and vision for the series. And most importantly, they want the end product to be FUN.”
Philippa Dickinson, Managing Director, RHCP comments “Monkey Nuts has enormous appeal with its hilarious plots and slapstick characters and we look forward to it reaching a wider audience with RHCSE.”
