Set in the heart of the African rainforest, Chimpanzee tells the tale of a newborn chimpanzee named Oscar whose mother is taken away by a rival group of chimpanzees. Left alone without a mother, Oscars time should be up. But in an extraordinary and unprecedented act of kindness, the leader of his group, a powerful male named Freddie, adopts the youngster. 

Chimpanzee is a gripping and deeply moving tale that reveals just how funny, intelligent, and fascinating these wild animals can be. Directed by Alastair Fothergill (Earth and African Cats) and Mark Linfield (Earth), this heart-warming family saga is full of humor, drama, and tenderness.
This early reader tells the story of the film and is filled with stunning images of the chimpanzee stars and their incredible habitat, the African rainforest. The simple text and captivating photos make this book perfect for young readers.
