i bought this for my son's birthday so i only had a quick scan through it before finding a hiding place for it. from what i gathered in my quick scan its pitched at anyone from young teens to adults and documents the trials and tribulations of three leading ape researchers. the drawings are lovely, especially the little orang who is perpetually attached to Birute. Can't wait for my boy's birthday so i can steal it off him and read it properly
I am a primatologist, and can't be more happy about this book. The three stories have a funny touch, which makes the book even better. The illustrations are beautiful. I'm giving this book to my primatologist friends, because it's simply amazing.
The book was delivered well before the promised deadline. It is a funny and heart warming book. It encapsulates the story of science and three brave women succinctly. Very good for a light read or as a first primer on a bigger picture. The illustrations are wonderfully entertaining.
