Written with fact-filled, often witty reverence and featuring 100 of the author’s gorgeous photographs, this is a fun and informative step-by-step guide to chimpanzee life. The captivating pictures are accompanied by a simple, humorous and engaging text which tells you all about the contrasting lives of chimps in the wild and those being rehabilitated at rescue centres.

The book is split into two main parts, presented across 40 beautifully designed spreads. Each starts with the word ‘being’ as part of a sequential guide to the various stages, characteristics, behaviour, quirks and challenges of chimp life. From a life in the wild – being a baby, being a mum, being like us, being a community, being clever and so on – to a very different life at rehabilitation centres – being rescued, being seen by the vet, being supported, being bottle-fed, being encouraged and more – this charming and touching book will leave you brimming with knowledge and rooting for chimps everywhere.

The Book of Being Chimp is a warm, witty and informative look at the wonderful but challenging world of simply being a chimpanzee.
