‘Beautiful and engrossing… with a zing of poetic justice’ – Observer
‘A thrillingly original tale… Its spectacular artwork will have you positively swinging from one page to the next… It’s one of the most gripping, artfully told stories I’ve read this year’ – The Times
Feast your eyes on the gorgeously illustrated, prizewinning prequel to The Murderer’s Ape (a Waterstones Children’s Book of the Month!) –The Legend of Sally Jones. This stunning book, written and illustrated by Jakob Wegelius, is the story of a gorilla like no other.
It’s the story of a fantastic voyage across the world, from the Congolese rainforest to the grand bazaar of Istanbul, from Borneo to London, Singapore and beyond. The story of a mysterious jewel thief and a sad sailor with a heart of gold. A story of friendship and adventure on the high seas.
This is the story of Sally Jones.
