Sample to reproduce the error

var settings = new JsonSerializerSettings { Formatting = Formatting.Indented, TypeNameHandling = TypeNameHandling.All };
var text2 = JsonConvert.SerializeObject(Container, settings);
var obj2 = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject<ContainerClass>(text2, settings);

That is the normal output of text1
  "$type": "ConsoleApp2.ContainerClass, ConsoleApp2",
  "Items": {
    "$type": "System.Collections.Generic.List`1[[ConsoleApp2.CoreContainer, ConsoleApp2]], mscorlib",

This is the Output of of text2 from the workbook
 "$type": "🐵0003#0-1+ContainerClass, 🐵0003#0-1", 
 "Items": { 
 "$type": "System.Collections.Generic.List`1[[🐵0003#0-1+CoreContainer, 🐵0003#0-1]], mscorlib",

and this is the error after the DeserializeObject of text2 on the workbook
JsonSerializationException: Error resolving type specified in JSON '🐵0003#0-1+ContainerClass, 🐵0003#0-1'. Path '$type', line 2, position 50............

All types defined in a workbook are happening in a host object, which is the monkey/number thing you're seeing. We'll look into how we can prevent this issue.

It works on a Mac 

WorkBook Version 1.2.2

This should be fixed in an upcoming release. Thank you for the detailed bug report and including the sample workbook!
