This is the first of many of Felonious Monk’s adventures


Prison inmates are very grateful to the volunteers who come to visit them. Every Institution has a volunteer appreciation event annually. One lovely feature of this event is an opportunity for each guest to pick a gift from tables of crafts and artwork that have been made by the inmates. I was honoured to attend several of these volunteer appreciation events and it was there that I chose this lovely sock monkey. I have  named him Felonious Monk.

I originally intended to take Felonious on a trip across Canada to document his adventures re-entering Society. With the Covid pandemic upon us, we are not going cross-country touring these days. Felonious realizes that he can still have Adventures because after being incarcerated, life is truly the real Adventure.
