About this book

This illustrated guide offers a fascinating insight into the lives of monkeys and other small simians. Unusual lifestyles, clever survival tactics and stunning habitats are captured in magnificent wildlife photographs. Special focus features zoom in on topics such as the eye-catching coloration of the mighty mandrill and the loud honking call of the proboscis monkey. It is an invaluable resource for young natural history enthusiasts aged 8 to 12.

A monkey has flexible arms for swinging through the trees, a long tail for balance, good eyesight to spot food and predators and – most important of all – a large brain to make sense of its environment. Monkeys takes you on a thrilling and fact-filled journey through this incredible world. You can find out how the lithe tails of spider monkeys act like extra limbs, and learn how a bush baby's enormous eyes help it to see in the dark. You can explore the chilly world of the Japanese macaque, discover the finely tuned agility of golden langurs, and much more.
