Summary

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!
