Description


"White makes an intense emotional connection between subject and reader. . . . The great apes have found their John Singer Sargent." — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

A Book Sense Children’s Pick
A Bank Street College Best Children’s Book of the Year
A New York Public Library: 100 Titles for Reading and Sharing Selection
An ASPCA Henry Bergh Children’s Book Award Winner

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.

Praise For…


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.
