Inhaltsangabe

"This may be the most charming book I’ve read all year." (The New York Times)   

"I don’t know when I last read a book with such pure and unalloyed pleasure." (Philip Pullman, internationally best-selling author of the His Dark Materials series)   

Winner of the Mildred L. Batchelder Award, this is a captivating story about dark truths and heinous crimes as well as unexpected friendships. Perfect for fans of Brian Selznick and mystery and detective stories. 

Sally Jones is not only a loyal friend, she's an extraordinary individual. In overalls or in a maharaja's turban, this unique gorilla moves among humans without speaking but understanding everything. She and the Chief are devoted comrades who operate a cargo boat. A job they are offered pays big bucks, but the deal ends badly, and the Chief is falsely convicted of murder. 

For Sally Jones this is the start of a harrowing quest for survival and to clear the Chief's name. Powerful forces are working against her, and they will do anything to protect their secrets.
