I don't really know what you're intentions are, but I just revamped my Monkey build and it is Halfling and does just about everything.

I found this (https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/423268-The-Shintao-Monk-is-broken-!?p=5091378&viewfull=1#post5091378) interesting post yesterday.

I'm a light HElf monk and am looking at trying out some of his ED (and maybe enhancement) suggestions. His monk is Dex/Wis, mine is more Str/Wis, so some things I can re-create on mine, some I can't.

Halfling isn't optimal for pure light monk at the moment, since the number of ways to go dex/wis-unarmed are very limited.

However, I'd do something like this:
32pt halfing build (for 28 pt, drop strength to 12 and get a +1 tome)
16- all lvl ups here, +2 tome by lvl 21 for vorp strikes

10 feats before epic:
1) DM of healing, twf(M)
2) power attack(M)
3) cleave, path of harmonious balance
6) great cleave, stunning fist(M)
9) improved twf
12) improved critical blunt
15) greater twf
18) CHOICE: improved sunder is my recommendation though
21) Vorpal strikes if possible, otherwise improved martial arts
24) whichever you didn't take at 21.

dragon mark of healing line, whatever else - 12pts
shintao tree- full core, full line to kukan do, deft strikes, con/wis enhancements, whatever you need to get to top tier.
next is a choice between henshin and ninja spy. for your secondary tree. ninja spy has sneak attack dice and shadow fade, while henshin has lots of little benefits. It's up to you.
