This is a wonderfully informative book for kids to learn about the wildlife of Madagascar. The text is easy to read & filled with descriptive info presented in an absorbing manner. Illustrations are provided on each page, and they are quite beautiful. I was pleasantly surprised to find Dr. Patricia Wright's name mentioned in this book, as her research work on lemurs is quite impressive & interesting!
An accurate & entertaining account of life in the rainforest

The illustrations in this book are a delight, and add to the story that this author has put together about her work in the rainforests of Madagascar. She depicts both the positive and the challenging (sometimes not so rosy) aspects of living and working in a remote rainforest location. It would be a treat for any young reader you know. Nature loving adults (lemur fans in particular!) will also get a kick out of this one. The stories are heartwarming, and accurate(I have worked at the site that inspired this book).
buy this for yourself!!! Great book.

This is a wonderful account of what it is like to be a primatologist, searching for the world's most beautiful and rare primates on the most exotic island of Madagascar. The text is engaging and the illustrations, also done by the author, are spectacular. This is a great book for grown ups who want to learn more about lemurs and Madagascar, or for children who want to do a book report. The book provides a hopeful message of conservation.
