Banana Tail is a fun-loving story about a mischievous monkey and his friends aimed at ages preschool to six-years-old. The fun-loving Banana Tail and his lovable friends will have kids asking for more.

Written by Mark McKenna with art by Kevin West and Mark McKenna, Banana Tail tells the story of a young monkey who can’t get enough bananas and one day finds his tail to be yellow, much like that of his favorite food.

Along for the ride are his good friends Tic Tac, a checkered skin zebra and Reena the mood color changing rhinoceros. Eventually, you also meet Snare, a near-sighted snake that hangs out with his angry partner in crime, Snap the alligator.

In the latest story, Banana Tail and The Checkerboard Jungle, we learn how Banana Tail met his good friend Tic Tac while on the run from Snare and Snap. It’s a fun page-turner and comes in at a humble 33 pages.
