In the early 1950s, Charles Payzant wrote a book called Moko, the Circus Monkey. His wife, Terry Shannon (pseudonym of Jessie Mercer), became a writer of children's books in 1952, and he illustrated many of her works. The books they collaborated on were mostly nonfiction and were designed for the seven-to-twelve age group.
