There was a storm on the horizon, but the little monkey knew the snake was the only one he could face the storm with. When the monkey leaned right to paddle, the snake balanced left, they flowed as one, balancing each other out through the jungle storm. The river glowed green that night, lighting their way, as someone was watching from deep within a cave. #monkey #littlemonkey #adventure #safari #explore #explorer #drawing #illustration #childrensbook #bedtimestories #tiki #tikitony

The little monkey and the snake, old friends that lived a thousand lives before, reincarnated to finally be reacquainted. They recalled all their favorite delights, mangos, bananas, strawberries, cookies and cream. Together again, old pals, floating along as one. #monkey #littlemonkey #adventure #safari #explore #explorer #drawing #illustration #childrensbook #snake #pithhelmet #jungle #junglecruise #disney #disneyland #adventureland #bedtimestories #tiki #tikitony

Tippy Tiki hanging out at the Tiki Ti. Photo by @voodoojorge This mug name may officially change to “Tipsy” because that’s what everyone has been calling it. This is the only rocking tiki mug and he never spills. #tiki #tikimug #tikiti #handmade #ventura #california #tippytiki #tipsytiki #disney #disneyland #rockingmug #tikibar #cocktail #barware #maitai #tikitony

After that long long drop into the deep, deep water, little monkey realized he wasn’t alone. Out popped a snake, with curiously familiar eyes that sparkled green like those emeralds in that treasure the monkey was after. It was like greeting an old friend that he didn’t even know was gone. “Hello George Ssssss,” said the snake, “Hello Hansen,” said the little monkey. Funny thing about old friends, they always have nick names for each other, as neither of them were named George or Hansen. #monkey #littlemonkey #adventure #safari #explore #explorer #drawing #illustration #childrensbook #bedtimestories #tiki #tikitony

After a bright sunshiny day skipping about the jungle and pretending to be a super hero fighting crime, our brave little monkey, decided to take a plunge down the river he was warned about so many times. The mean old hippo said there’s just a few small rapids but no big drops. The first few minutes were kinda fun, watching the jungle float by. A roar from a lion was getting nearer and nearer. When the roar was upon him, he saw a 200 foot waterfall. Down, down, down over the falls he flowed, deep, deep, very steep. Splashing, drips, water everywhere, wet wet water splashing, as he tumbled under water, bubbles, bubbling. #monkey #barrel #bedtimestories #tiki #sketch #taketheplunge #monkeysinabarrel #adventure #tikitony #noneedforproppersentences #imtired #needaproofreader #quitcomplaining #goodnight #sleepytime

Pitter patter, pitter patter, down the path skipping along, skiffle skuffle, hopping on rocks, this little monkey’s skipping to his beat, his pulse is pulling him right along, the path is a journey to his treasure that’s getting more precious with each passing sunset. #monkey #littlemonkey #adventure #safari #explore #explorer #drawing #illustration #childrensbook #bedtimestories #tiki #tikitony

High up in the trees the little monkey swayed, rocking back and forth in his fishnet hammock. The rhythm of the jungle, the squawks from the birds, and the croaks from the frogs soothed the monkey’s soul as he fell back asleep day dreaming of how he’ll finally find that treasure once and for all. High up in the clouds, he’d captain a ship, seaweed, kelp and starfish clung to the hull, as the east winds lifted it right out of the sea. This magical ship was sure to be the answer, flying amongst the stars, and anchoring in the clouds, the treasure is hidden way up up above! “Am I dreaming, is this even real?” #tiki #pirateship #nautical #bedtimestories #ship #sea #clouds #dreaming #daydreaming #yesthesailsareupbutitssailing #anchor #flyawaywithme #littlemonkey #treasure #adventure #explore #ahoy #tikitony
