Mad about MonkeysFull of fascinating facts and loaded with rich, wild and whimsical illustrations, Owen Davey’s Mad About Monkeys is a both a delight for the eyes and a feast for the curious mind.

From the smallest Pygmy Marmoset to the biggest Mandrill, Mad About Monkeys takes us on an adventure across continents, from the jungles of South America to the highlands of East Africa, delving deep in to the world of our monkey cousins to answer all the questions you ever wanted to know and more. Find out why the sneaky little devils have a reputation for mischief, stealing handbags and sunglasses right off the faces of zoo visitors; the sad story of Albert, the first primate in Space and all about the strange Proboscis Monkey whose nose is so long it dangles over his mouth, getting longer as he grows older!
