What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Browne really cranks up the color intensity in this gorgeous, large-trim portrait gallery of primates.
—Kirkus Reviews

The key to the book’s impact lies in the dignity of a portrait sitting that Browne confers on creatures more commonly seen behind glass walls. Every face has a discernible personality. Even the lemurs are distinct individuals, with variations in snouts, eyes, and ears.
—Publishers Weekly

The text is spare: "1 gorilla"; "2 orangutans"; "3 chimpanzees"; and so forth, concluding after "10 lemurs" with depictions of the author and an array of humans. The portraits, however, are extraordinary: Browne’s exquisite precision, with delicate hatching of fur and careful stippled delination of facial lines, becomes jubilant with color and personality.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

This book is great for both counting and ape family recognition.

The pictures in this book are vibrant however,  I DO NOT recommend it!  This book promotes evolution.  The last two pages of thebook state...all primates...all one family...all my family and yours.  The living God is creator of all there is and will ever be, we are created in the very image of God.  Look at Genesis 1:27 in the Bible...So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
