Jennie | [Douglas Preston, Dale Hull]

Jennie

Jennie is the story of an orphaned chimpanzee who grows up with her adopted human family. Jennie adapts to her surroundings quickly, to enjoy the pursuits of the average young person - riding her own tricycle, playing with her pet kitten and Barbie, and fighting with her siblings. Written as a fictional oral history, Jennie tells the story of the Archibalds, the Boston-area family that took in the chimp from 1965 to 1975, and the ensuing family and scientific debates.

Publisher's Summary

Jennie is the story of an orphaned chimpanzee who grows up with her adopted human family. Jennie adapts to her surroundings quickly, to enjoy the pursuits of the average young person - riding her own tricycle, playing with her pet kitten and Barbie, and fighting with her siblings.

Written as a fictional oral history, Jennie tells the story of the Archibalds, the Boston-area family that took in the chimp from 1965 to 1975, and the ensuing family and scientific debates.

Jennie's story is hilarious, poignant, and, in times, desperately sad. Based on accounts of six different cases of chimps in human surroundings, Jennie will make you laugh, fill you with wonder, and make your heart go out to a touching and warm character unlike any other - Jennie.
