Illustrated in full colour throughout, an uplifting and unique look at chimps past and present. Explores what we can do to protect chimps of the future and preserve this endlessly fascinating species, by evolutionary biologist and TV scientist, Dr Ben Garrod.

How do you teach a chimp to be a chimp? Does laughter come naturally to these animals? Do chimps grieve? For over a decade, Dr Ben Garrod has studied chimps and ways to protect and conserve them. We join Ben on a journey that has taken him around the world. With exclusive access to world-famous primatologist, Dr Jane Goodall, for whom he worked in Uganda, to SE Asia, the Caribbean and his most recent encounters with orphaned chimps in Liberia, where he's working with Jimmy and Jenny Desmond to set up a sanctuary. In his infectious, lighthearted, trademark style, Ben describes encounters with chimps to highlight the different threats they face, from the illegal international pet trade, to the bushmeat market, and the effects of habitat loss - not to mention your new furniture, your toothpaste and your mobile phone, all of which are implicated in their falling numbers!



Illustrated throughout in full colour, a brilliant story for all the family to share and enjoy.
