Monkeys to the Rescue!

by J. Day Clarkson


This post is to introduce an up-and-coming writer of note — in my humble opinion.

Ms. Clarkson happens to be my 9-year-old granddaughter by way of her mother. She will turn the mighty age of ten in October.

She has put together a very intriguing story about which she also wrote the intro below. The full tale has not been completed, and she is working to that end.

I thought it would be fun to get comments on her idea. So, if you would mind leaving a comment on the following, her grandfather would greatly appreciate it.



When a troop of Capuchin monkeys that lives in a rain forest lose their home to The Uprights, they have to make a decision: stop The Uprights, or leave their home.

Both decisions will be hard and dangerous. Which will they choose?

Times are hard and frightening. Barley, a young female member of the troop, can only watch as her family and friends are split apart.

    Ms. Clarkson –
    I’m rooting for the troop of Capuchin monkey.
    And – I am interested in how the story will unfold.

    She is so far a very good writer and I was already hooked. I hope her story will be posted. Talent runs in families for sure.

    I really can’t believe that she is writing in such a prolific way. I love her stories.

    Hi, hadn’t connected for a while, so decided to drop in. And what a lovely surprise, a talented 10 year old writing away. I think her style is brilliant and she’s got a good story too. I look forward to catching more of her writing. I like the simplicity and clarity of thought.

      She does have a grasp of many elements of writing at a very early age. A voracious reader as well!
