MailChimp asked us to come up with an idea for 2014 holiday gifts. We wrote, illustrated and produced a mystery picture book. The whodunit emphasizes Mannie’s ingenuity, Freddie's helpfulness, and the creativity of both primate pals.
Someone has sabotaged Mannie’s new invention at its premiere, allowing Freddie to indulge his life-long dream of becoming a detective.
The book was printed in metallic black and white inks with neon spot colors to provide stark contrast between the everyday world and the magic of Mannie’s invention.
Readers can solve the mystery by either paying close attention to visual clues or by cheating and reading the solution at the end.
