WATERSTONES CHILDREN’S BOOK OF THE MONTH
‘I don’t know when I last read a book with such pure and unalloyed pleasure’ – Philip Pullman
We’re beyond excited to be publishing this beautiful new paperback edition of The Murderer’s Ape by Jakob Wegelius, featuring beautiful maps and illustrations by the author throughout. As gorgeous inside as it is out, The Murderer’s Ape has a host of marvellous characters, helmed by the extraordinary Sally Jones. In overalls or in a maharaja’s turban, this unique gorilla moves among humans without speaking but understanding everything.
Trust us, you need this utterly charming adventure tale in your life.
