The Murder’s Ape: the odyssey of an ape named Sally Jones, whose owner is accused of killing a small time crook. This isn’t a fast paced who dunnit, so be prepared to meet many fun, funny and fascinating characters as the story meanders from Portugal to England to London to Egypt to India. Sally Jones tells the story from her very intelligent point of view, which makes the journey unique and exciting. It’s an award winner in Scandinavia, and I can understand why.
Though listed as YA, it’s appropriate for MG’s.
