Lee Lee the Surfing Monkey Goes to Australia

By Krissy Mach Atchison

Children's | Hardback


Lee Lee is a monkey who LOVES to surf! He's ready to leave the familiar beach of his hometown in search of gnarly waves all over the globe. Where to start? Australia of course! There he meets and learns about new animal friends, avoids a scary encounter with dingoes, and proves he can surf like a local! Join Lee Lee on the first of many surfing adventures around the world.




The idea of Lee Lee began very organically when Krissy first started teaching third grade in Baltimore County, MD, USA. Early on in her teaching career, she realized the importance of incorporating literature into her lessons. Whenever she read novels to her class, she could not help but notice how engaged they were, and how some of her most valuable teaching moments occurred during these less structured reading times. Looking for ways to spruce up her third grade geography lessons, Krissy began highlighting different continents and countries where her brother, Leon, had been to surf. The students could not get enough of the stories that accompanied Leon’s travels and their interest in Social Studies related topics began to grow. Upon combining third grade social studies and science concepts, her brother’s childhood nickname (Lee Lee the Monkey), as well as his travels as an avid surfer and graduate student studying sustainable surf tourism, “Lee Lee the Surfing Monkey” was born. Whether you are looking to read for pure enjoyment, or to broaden your child’s knowledge of faraway places, readers of all ages are sure to adore Lee Lee as they follow him on his many adventures around the world!
