Description

A young, orphaned chimpanzee must go to forest school to learn how to climb, be a chimp, and build his confidence. Stunning photographs from award-winning photographer Gerry Ellis are sure to captivate young readers and raise awareness about chimpanzees and the threats they face.

Little Larry is an orphaned chimpanzee who doesn't know much about being a chimp.He’s off to the forest school to learn what chimp life is all about. Nestled in a primate sanctuary in Cameroon, Little Larry and his group of chimp friends go to the forest school each day to learn how to play, communicate, and climb like they would if they were chimps in the wild. The only trouble is, Little Larry doesn't want to learn how to climb. He's perfectly happy on the ground. Will the sanctuary keepers and other chimpanzees be able to teach Little Larry how to climb so he can graduate from forest school?

This sweet story, with its beautiful photographs, explores the challenges of going to school, learning, and having confidence in yourself, and is a perfect read-aloud tale for children preparing to enter nursery for the very first time.
