Ape quartet volume 3.
Scholastic Press,
Pub. Date:
First edition.

Two-time National Book Award finalist Eliot Schrefer introduces us to an orangutan held captive in suburban America.

John grows up with everything he could possibly want, his father a businessman who travels far and wide. One day, he comes home with a rare gift for his son, a baby orangutan, and the two become inseparable friends. But as the orangutan gets older, stronger, less cute, the family relegates the animal to a locked trailer in the backyard. Until John's father finally decides to sell the ape to a roadside zoo. Coming to the defense of his childhood friend, John resolves to smuggle the orangutan back to Indonesia, and the two set out on a journey far more dangerous than John bargained for.
