Henry, our monkey hostAs you can see (unless you read this blog through an RSS feed), there’s a new header graphic, with a new monkey. I had been looking for years for a Steiff monkey hand puppet, and (hooray) I finally found one on eBay.

These Steiff monkeys have, I think, a certain personality about them – a tongue-in-cheek quirkiness that really appeals to me. I plan to use Henry (for so I have named him) for various purposes in the blog in the future, so watch out for him in some graphics as time goes by.

He may even find some part-time work in storytimes.
