A Troop is a Group of Monkeys! A cool MeeGenius entry!

Julie Hedlund (Write Up My Life blog) has an entry in the MeeGenius contest that you should really check out! For those of you that don’t know, this September MeeGenius, an online book publisher started a contest to find “The Next Great Children’s Book Author.”

Ms. Hedlund’s book is called “A Troop Is A Group of Monkeys.” It is a picture book that names all sorts of animal groups, like a troop of monkeys.

A troop of monkeys

Here is a part of her blog post explaining about the idea behind her book –

“I’d heard of a pack of wolves, a herd of buffalo and a pride of lions.  But a float of crocodiles? An ostentation of peacocks?”

I personally like “A Quiver of Cobras”!

  1. I’ve already voted for Julie’s stories and they’ll only let you vote once per story! It’s a great idea, though, and I hope she wins 🙂 It’s very nice of you to help spread the word!

  2. Great review! I love “animal group” names, so I’ll have to take a look at this book. Does she mention “a murder of crows” or “a crash of rhinos”?

  3. Who comes up with these official group names? They’re wild!

  4. Wow Erik, thank you so much for writing about my story! I definitely hope I get to write sequels. I did a lot of research and have TONS more collective nouns I could write about! 🙂

    Thanks again for sharing my story. You’ve made my day – my week!
