Born Free: Chimp Rescue A True Story by Jess French

This is the story of Chinoise, the baby chimpanzee who was rescued by Born Free and their supporters in 2014. After spending her early life isolated and in captivity, Chinoise now lives in a special nursery for rescued primates where, at last, she has made friends and learned how to play. Join Born Free behind the scenes of one of their real life rescues.

Reviews

This is an excellent introduction for key stage 2 children to the plight of baby chimpanzees, and the subject of animal welfare and protection. * English Association * This book is illustrated throughout with gorgeous colour photos which make you wonder how anyone could ill-treat such a beautiful creature * Parents In Touch *
