book coverThreatened
Eliot Schrefer

Threatened is Eliot Schrefer's second book about endangered apes; this one centers on Chimpanzees in Gabon. (The first Endangered, about bonobos in Congo, was named a finalist for the national book award.) Threatened is the story of street orphan from Gabon who ends up living alone with a troop of chimpanzees. Extraordinarily compelling and fascinating, it is also at the same time quite assessable. His previous books, The School for Dangerous Girls and Glamorous Disasters among others, are written or kids who want to read for fun. So this story, so poetic and stirring, is written as popular and funny fiction, but about a topic about which Schrefer cares deeply.
