The Murderer’s Ape
Jakob Wegelius, Peter Graves
Mr B's review
Mr B’s Christmas Catalogue Review 2018
There is no-one quite like Sally – an extraordinary ape, loyal friend and gifted engineer. When a deal ends badly Sally must do everything she can to clear her beloved Chief of a crime he didn’t commit. Join Sally as she sits at her old Underwood typewriter and narrates her madcap adventures, travelling from Lisbon to Bombay, meeting a colourful cast of unique characters along the way. With vibrant maps and gorgeous illustrations, this is a classic in the making!
Sally Jones is not only a loyal friend, she’s an extraordinary individual. In overalls or in a maharaja’s turban, this unique gorilla moves among humans without speaking but understanding everything. She and the Chief are devoted comrades who operate a cargo boat. A job they are offered pays big bucks, but the deal ends badly, and the Chief is falsely convicted of murder.
For Sally Jones this is the start of a harrowing quest for survival and to clear the Chief’s name. Powerful forces are working against her, and they will do anything to protect their secrets.
