Synopsis

Normal Norman by Tara Lazar

What is 'normal? That's the question an eager young scientist, narrating her very first book, hopes to answer. Unfortunately, her exceedingly 'normal' subject - an orangutan named Norman - turns out to be exceptionally strange. He speaks English, sleeps in a bed, loves his stuffed toy, goes bananas over pizza and even deep-sea dives! What's a normal' scientist to do? A humorous look at the wackiness that makes us all special - and a gentle reminder that 'normal' can't ever be defined.
