    I loved this book because I love monkeys and apes and things like that, and also it was a really good book because of Jane and to go on a lot of adventures and travel all over the world and thats like me because I love to go on adventures. I would highly recommend this book for anybody that likes adventures. I think that this is the best DCF book ever!!!

    This book is amazing! It kept me reading for a long time and it had a lot of detail, and its even better since it is a graphic novel. I would really recommend this book to whoever likes apes/ monkeys and graphic novels. My favorite part in this book is when Diane put a banana on the table and when she came back a gorilla took it, and it was totally by accident. I hope I find more books like this!

    I really did not like this book it was very BORING.I just barely finished this book and raturned it rite back to the library.

    Well, it is certainly very different from Zebra Forest, which seems to be more to your taste! Have you tried Golden Boy? That has some high drama too. — Kate Davie

    I learned a lot about Jane Goodall, Dian Fossey, and Birute Galdikas. I didn’t know that Jane was interested in this kind of stuff since she was little. This was a really good book!

    You might like to take a look at Me . . . Jane by Patrick McDonnell, if you haven’t already. It includes copies of some of the wildlife work Jane Goodall did when she was quite young! — Kate Davie

    Primates was a good book because the jungle was always an adventure to me and it could be an adventure to other people.
