Hero Chimps by Julie Norton

A collection of remarkable mini-biographies of some of the world's highest profile chimps.

Hero Chimps includes space travellers, Ham and Enos; Michael Jackson’s chimp-child, Bubbles; Washoe and Nim, who learned sign language; Tarzan’s side-kick Cheetah; London Zoo tea-party chimps; and ‘actor’ chimps in TV adverts.

All were manipulated by humans to be substitutes for us, entertain us or act as celebrity accessories.

This book salutes them and the many other unnamed and forgotten chimps who have done so much for humankind.

The book is available from Amazon in paperback and Kindle editions, price £7.79 and £5.18 respectively.
