Duluth Children’s Books Author Chris Monroe Lands a Deal With Netflix [VIDEO]
Duluth resident Chris Monroe will soon have 20 episodes in a pre- school series that will be available for streaming on Netflix. The shows will be based on Monroe's books about Chico Bon Bon "Monkey with a Toolbelt ."The show is being described as very silly and teaches preschoolers about how things work.
Monroe has written and illustrated eight children's books along with many other collaborations with other authors and she also wrote and illustrated a comic strip for 22 years. I had the privilege of meeting Chris many years ago through a mutual friend, and our kids have all her books that are autographed as well.
According to Monroe's Facebook Fan Page the Netflix series is listed on IMDB and has been in development since March 10th 2018. No word yet on when it will be available for streaming since production is underway right now. For more on this exciting series check out the video of our interview with Chris below.
