Overview

• The book is an edited and illustrated version of the original one and includes 15 or more unique illustrations which are relevant to its content.
• “A careful aim to avoid all technical terms and scientific phraseology has been adhered to, and the subject treated in a simple style. Tedious details are relieved by an ample supply of anecdotes taken from the writer's own observations, and most of them are the acts of his own pets or of apes in a wild state. The author has refrained from rash deductions and abstruse theories, but has sought to place the animals here treated in their true light, believing that to dignify the apes is not to degrade man, but to exalt him even more. It is hoped that a more perfect knowledge of these animals may bring man into closer fellowship and deeper sympathy with Nature, and cause him to realise that all creatures think and feel in some degree, however small.”

Monkeys are stupied, anoying, disturbing little creatures that make so much noise. Like my baby sister. They are adorable, but they poop on you when you eat your lunch ( true story). I am not friends with a girl because she likes monkeys. I broke up with my boyfriend because he liked monkeys. Im saying this in the nicest way but MONKEYS ARE STUPIED!!!!! WHY DO YUO WRITE BOOKS ABOUT THEM! Screaming babies are less annoying then monkeys. I hate monkeys. I wish they were banished from the face of the earth. They are stupied. If u agree reply to olivianicool or hpfangirl.
