Lasky also writes about what has been conjectured about how this island became the only place in the world where lemurs, as well as certain plants, are found. A short profile of Jolly and how she became a primatologist is also included in this information-packed volume that ends with a warning about the pending ecological crisis on this island,where the lemurs' habitat is vanishing, and how Jolly's work will hopefully help the Malagasy government on Madagascar promote a sustainable environment for humans and lemurs alike.

Good book

I think the best part of the book is that it shows children the fun and excitement of doing primate research in the wild. It shows why Alison Jolly has
returned to the same piece of forest for the last
30 years. It balances that by displaying some of
the sorrow
when you cannot help a dying animal.

And of course, it describes Lemur catta social organization
at a level which should be entertaining to children,
and mentions briefly some of the other lemurs found
in Berenty reserve.

The book is nicely illustrated with photographs on
every page.

This book is very nice, with wonderful information and pictures. However, at the end, the authors writes of the death of a baby lemur by falling. While I understand this is how life is, I am not sure all young children are ready for a picture of a dead baby lemur with it's distraught mother.
