Like a Brother. The Story of Julius the Chimpanzee
Som ein bror. Historia om sjimpansen Julius

A captivating portrait of a chimpanzee

At midnight on the first day of Christmas 1979, a small chimpanzee was born in Kristiansand Zoo. His name was Julius and he was about to have a rocky start in life. His mother turned him away, and Julius was at last adopted by two human families.
But what happens when a chimpanzee moves straight from a zoo to a house filled with humans?

This is the true story of Norway’s first celebrity animal. It tells the story of his long journey back to his fellow chimpanzees, and ten years of escape attempts and feelings of isolation. About how Julius eventually became the leader of his zoo’s chimpanzees, and how the humans he used to live with still see him as a brother.
The author also discusses other chimpanzees who have lived in captivity, and various researchers who have experiences with these close ancestors of ours.

Illustrated throughout with photographs.
