Gak is the only hominidee in his tribe who walks on two feet instead of on all fours, and all his pals tease him with the nickname "Gakky Two- Feet." He feels like he’ll never fit in, but when his unique way of walking allows him to stand tall and save his friends from a hungry lion, Gak’s tribe starts to see him in a whole new light.
This clever story of ape antics and adaptation, by former Monkee Micky Dolenz, accompanied by David Clark’s hilarious illustrations, is sure to have both kids and grownups laughing out loud.
Author Biography: Micky Dolenz, former member of the Monkees, works in the television and music industry. He lives in New York City and Los Angeles.

Simply one of the most charming children's books I have read in a long time. My six year old adored it and wanted me to read it with her time and again. Micky has managed to capture the quirkiness of a beautiful creature and convey the message that being different is a good thing! I love this book and hope he writes more. He has an innate sense of the Inner Child as this book appeals to adults as well as to children. Thanks Micky... a brilliant job! (now, what else is it that you do??? :) ) xoxoxoxo Jay xxxx
