About this book

I've hand-reared dozens of chimps over the years when they've been rejected by their mothers. They stay in the house with us until they are about two years old and are affectionate and well-behaved...They sleep in a blanket with a pillow (yes, some have been known to snuggle up in bed with me). As they get older they can become dangerous if they don't know you, but I've never been seriously bitten.

"Molly's Zoo" is a highly entertaining account of happenings unique to Twycross Zoo. Read about the chimp who took part in a Transatlantic Air Race; how the chimps became much-loved figures when they appeared in the Brooke Bond TV ads; the birth of their first baby giraffe; watching a rare Bonobo gently pick up a sparrow trapped inside its quarters, carry it carefully to the bars and release it to freedom; and the excitement of attending the births of two baby elephants. The adventures, challenges, rewards and laughs are all captured in this heart-warming animal book for Easter.
