National Geographic Kids Chapters: Ape Escapes: And More True Stories of Animals Behaving Badly - National Geographic Kids Chapters (Paperback)Aline Alexander Newman (author)
- Publisher out of stock
This is the first in a line of four books within the National Geographic Kids Chapters series that tell the true and hilarious stories of animals that love hijinks. In this book you'll meet three naughty animals, including Fu Manchu, the orangutan escape artist.
Fu Manchu lived at the Omaha Zoo and would routinely break out of his habitat to explore the zoo on a nice day. Zookeepers were baffled as to how the ape was escaping, until one day they caught him in the act. Fu Manchu knew how to pick locks. Not only that, he had created his own tool that he used to pick the locks with, which he would store in his mouth so as not to be found out. This and two other charming stories will engage readers and leave them wondering if humans are really the smartest animals.
