Does Anyone Know a Swedish Story about Two Monkeys?

Florence wrote asking for help finding a childhood story.  Here’s her letter:

Hello Lisa,

My Grandpa was Swedish and when I was growing up he and my Dad would tell us a story about Uncle Bobby and his two monkeys; Jim & Jockle (sp?). They were naughty little monkeys. That’s about all I can recall. I’ve have searched everywhere I can think to. I came across your website & thought you might be able to help. I don’t know if the story is Swedish or not. I just know I’ve never heard it from anyone except my Grandpa & my Dad.

I would be ever so grateful if you can help me.



If anyone knows anything about this story, please let us know in the comments below.
