When baby Ribbon arrives, visitors to Japan's Awaji Island Monkey Center wonder how she is going to manage with no hands and with ...small, twisted feet. How will she hold on to her mother? How will she walk? How will she climb in the trees? How will she interact with the other monkeys? And how will she someday look after her own baby? But everyone is in for a surprise. This monkey is determined to do things her own way. Ribbon's way. This story is not just about disabilities and the inspiring ways individuals meet those challenges. It is also, fundamentally, a story about being different and about rising above the limitations of others' expectations. As with her first book, The Littlest Monkey, primatologist Sarah Turner's heartwarming story is abundantly illustrated with her superb photographs. The back of the book also features facts about Japanese macaques (snow monkeys) and about Ribbon and the disabilities present in this unique primate population. A delightful addition is a "find the critter" collage of animals and insects from Ribbon's forest world. read more
Excerpt: . Fishing for big frogs, by the way, is no tame sport. The red seems to excite them tremendously, and they take the fly l...ike a black salmon. But the moment the first frog started, frog number two waked up and darted forward, making less noise but coming more swiftly. The first frog had jumped once for the fly and missed it, when the other leaped upon him savagely, and a fight began, while the ibis lay neglected on a lily pad. They pawed and bit each other fiercely for several minutes; then the second frog, a little smaller than the other, got the grip he wanted and held it. He clasped his fore legs tight about his rival's neck and began to strangle him slowly. I knew well how strong Chigwooltz is in his forearms, and that his fightings and wrestlings are desperate affairs; but I did not know till then how savage he can be. He had gripped from behind by a clever dive, so as to use his weight when the right 78 moment came. Tighter and tighter he hugged; the big frog's eyes seemed bursting from his head, and his mouth was forced slowly open. Then his savage opponent lunged upon him with his weight, and forced his head under water to finish him. The whole thing seemed scarcely more startling to the luckless big frog than to the watcher in the canoe. It was all so brutal, so deliberately planned The smaller frog, knowing that he was no match for the other in strength, had waited cunningly till he was all absorbed in the red fly, and then stole upon him, intending to finish him first and the little red thing afterwards. He would have done it too; for the big frog was at his last gasp, when I interfered and put them both in my net. Meanwhile a third frog had come walloping over the lily pads from somewhere out of sight, and grabbed the fly while the other two were fighting about it. It was he who first showed me a curious frog trick. When I lifted him from the water on the end of my line, he raised his hands above his head, as if he had been a man, and. read more
