Mama's kisses have long been magic, but have you ever wondered from where their magic originated? Long ago, a boy named Monkey McGhee was born in the far off village of Wyld Isle. From the start, Monkey was very different - he was quite hairy and his toes were squished full of stinky cheese. All of the villagers made fun of Monkey and called him some not-so-nice-names. Monkey’s Mama decided enough was enough and found the power of her magic kisses deep down inside of her heart. A power that was so strong, it transformed her little Monkey from stinky to swanky.
Shannon Ivey is “Mama” to three children, two of whom hail from Texas' foster system. Her middle son is an abuse victim who suffers from PTSD, OCD, and ADHD. As much as Shannon has tried to kiss away his hurt, his scars still remain. In an effort to pay for his psychiatric treatment, Ms. Ivey has decided to publish her book, Mama's Kisses Are Magic - which was originally written in private for her eldest son, Isaac Wyld.
Mama’s Kisses Are Magic is dedicated to her brilliant children Isaac, Calvin, and Megan.
