Monkey doesn't support keyboard only, I'm sorry to say for those who preferred that. The "what the character is looking at appears in the top corner of the screen where you can then use it or combine it with inventory" system built for W&G isn't in the Monkey codebase. That's one of those things that happens when you have projects with staggered/overlapping schedules. I imagine if the game ends up on XBLA we'll give that stuff a look again (don't quote me on that though as I'm just thinking out loud here), but the game on PC is keyboard/mouse hybrid or mouse only.

That means either that somewhere in the game you come across some Tales about Monkey Island (and they are vital to the plot), or you just thought the name sounded cool and there are no significant tales whatsoever.
I did my best to answer this question (or at least my personal take on an answer) just one page back
