Ape

Martin Jenkins (Author) Vicky White (Illustrator)
Backorder

Description

With compelling illustrations and a conservationist slant, this look at four rare great apes -- and one very familiar one -- is a book to go ape over.

Swing with a hairy orangutan and her baby as they lunge for a smelly, spiky durian fruit. Roam and play with a gang of chimps, then poke out some tasty termites with a blade of grass. Chatter and feast on figs with a bonobo, or chomp on bamboo with a gorilla as he readies for sleep. What could be better than spending time with these rare and wonderful creatures -- after all, the fifth great ape on this planet is you!
Back matter includes an index and a map.

Reviews

What seems to matter for White is making an intense emotional connection between subject and reader. And she succeeds--the great apes have found their John Singer Sargent.
