As soon as they leave the jungle, chimps and monkeys assume a frivolous air. There is no denying, for instance, that the capuchin monkey hero of this book, is a puckish clown, but Kasey to the Rescue also reveals a more human, even more miraculous side to his personality. After a car crash left young Ned Rogers a brain-injured quadriplegic, his family enlisted the aid of When Helping Hands: Monkeys Helpers for the Disabled. Kasey arrived at the Rogers home, full of mischief, yet using his interactive skills to help Ned's arduous recovery and lift the family's flagging spirits. Ned's mom Ellen Rogers has written a spirit-lifting memoir about a heart-breaking injury and the agile monkey "therapist" who came to rescue.
