TSOKO.  THE STORY OF A VERVET MONKEY., Rayner, Richard.  Illustrations by Lis Davis.

Author Name    Rayner, Richard. Illustrations by Lis Davis.

Title   TSOKO. THE STORY OF A VERVET MONKEY.

Publisher    Baobab Books, Harare, 1990.

Seller ID   23375

124 pp, 8 5/16" H, soft cover. ISBN 0908311273 B&w illustrations. "A troop of vervet monkeys running to escape the flames of a bush fire; a baby monkey flung from its mother as she is caught in a poacher's snare. Thus begins the story of Tsoko, of his adventures and misadventures in the wild and in the strange world of humans. And as this tale unfolds, there is the remarkable, almost magical relationship with his black friend Wordsworth, a gentle man gifted with a love for animals and the natural world...(this book) tells with tenderness, understanding and touches of fantasy, of the problems arising for people who acquire a wild animal pet, and not least for the animal itself which has to submit to human choices. It also con t a i n s m any facts about vervets, the most common species of monkey in Zimbabwe, and wildlife conservation in general. Primarily a book for older children, it should also appeal to a great number of adults." Interior - Christmas gift inscripti on o n ha lf - ti tle page, wrinkles (from manufacturing process) at top edge of first half of pages, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exterior - small area of edge wear at bottom of front cover. Very Good
