Melvin is certain he’s the unluckiest monkey in the world. He’s run out of bananas, thinks he has a terrible disease, and decides nobody can help, not even his best friend, Pete. What ensues is a tale of true friendship, devotion, and the importance of making your own luck. With wonderful line-drawn and color illustrations, Claudia Boldt creates a unique cast of characters in this humorous and sweet story.

Who Wrote Melvin the Luckiest Monkey

author & illustrator
Claudia Boldt

I went to Glasgow School of Art as well as Kingston University where I graduated with a Masters in Illustration in 2007. The same year I founded Cloud Cuckoo Studio with fellow illustrator Katharina Koall in London’s East End.

What I like doing most is writing and illustrating fun and slightly absurd comedies for 4 year olds! I want to entertain while remaining truthful to my personal emotions, interests and ideas. This year I have been selected to show my work at the illustrators exhibition at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair and my first two picture books will be published with Child’s Play.

Apart from making picture books my work has been exhibited internationally and was showcased in several publications including Images 33 and the 3x3 Illustration Directory. Recent editorial commissions include Waterstone’s Books Quarterly, Die Zeit and Süddeutsche Zeitung Magazin.
