Threatened by Eliot Schrefer. NEW! Luc is an orphan, age 12 or 13 – he’s not sure – living in debt slavery in Gabon. When he is caught trying to steal from a tourist, he is surprised that rather than turn him in, the man – a professor it turns out – offers him a job. Prof, as he is called, claims to be studying chimpanzees and takes Luc with him into the jungle. There Luc bonds with a small family of chimpanzees. But when Prof disappears, Luc has to fend for himself  and join forces with the chimps, scratching out a meager though increasingly satisfying existence.  When animal predators, rival tribes of chimps, and human hunters threaten – Luc and his new family are put to the test. Your young readers will be riveted as they journey with Luc from the streets of Franceville, Gabon to the heart of the jungle and into the lives of the chimpanzees who call the jungle their home. A companion to the author’s 2012 National Book Award Finalist, Endangered. Ages 12 and up. 286pp.
