Stories of kindness, chaos, and autism!

The Almost True Adventures of Tytus the Monkey are stories about kindness, chaos, and autism.

“Tytus continues to be equal measures of caring & mischief, which is what makes him so lovable!”

“When I write, my sorrows disappear and my courage is reborn.”

Toby Price is a former teacher and elementary principal. He is a husband, an educator, a writer, a story teller, an artist, and the King of Dad Jokes. He spends his time advocating for and working with children who have special needs. He has presented at ISTE, MECA, and MAMLE

As @JediPadmaster, on X (Formerly Twitter), Mr. Price loves connecting, learning, and laughing with other educators and parents. He believes that kids need access to all kinds of books, especially silly books. He is a father of three beautiful kids, two with autism. He has been married to his lovely wife, Leah, for 21 years. He lives with his family in Mississippi.


Tytus the monkey can make some pretty poor choices. But one of his choices in defence of his family leads to a BEAUTIFUL life lesson.

Just the perfect mix of funny and life lesson to keep our elementary kids engaged! Can’t wait to get it on my library shelf!

The Almost True Adventures of Tytus the Monkey is a short kids book that teaches about Autism in a way that people of all ages can understand. It’s also very funny, which helps keep your attention, without distracting from the message it’s sending.

Fun, sweet children’s books we could all learn from.


With over 20 years in education, I have learned a thing or two about people.
