Ape

author: Martin Jenkins
illustrator: Vicky White

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.

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.
