Bobby the Bold

A Picture Book by

Bobby is a bonobo. (It's fun to say. Try it: bo-NO-bo.) Many people mistake bonobos for chimps, but Bobby's not a chimp. He's a bonobo! He's also a very nice fellow. Then why won't the chimps at the zoo include him? Maybe he's just too different. Poor Bobby is lonely, so one day he slips out to explore the city. He comes across a barber shop . . . and comes out with a whole new look. Now he's even more different. What will the chimps do?

Full of funny turns and surprises, and irresistible illustrations, this sprightly tale of an oddball's adventure reminds us that friendship often comes easiest just by being bold, and being yourself.
