Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carolyn Mott Ford
Jane Goodall writes with the sensitivity of an advocate and the intellect of a scientist about the chimpanzee family. She is obviously at home, not just in the country of Tanzania, but also in the environment of the creatures she studies. She names the chimps, giving all chimpanzees in the same family names starting with the same letter. The book follows the chimps for a day beginning with Gremlin gently grooming her baby Galahad. Gremlin's oldest brother is Goblin and he is the boss of their community. The family relationships are important, as illustrated by the way Wunda, a nine and a half-year-old chimp, cares for her little brother, Wolfi, after the death of their mother. The author cites cases where baby chimps themselves died because they were so upset after losing their mothers. Each chimpanzee's own personality shows through in the actions and antics captured in the excellent photographs of the creatures and their world which accompany the text. Part of the "Animal Family" series. 1997
