Review by

This is about a chimp who grows up small and is made fun of. People call him a wimp. This makes him sad, so he works out and becomes very strong. He then saves the life of a female chimp and gets the girl in the end. Great book! 3-4

This story is about a chimp who is tired of being bullied. He talks to a body building expert and is no longer bullied. K-3

A very mixed message! There must be better books out there to approach this theme. But the last page is funny!
