In 2006 Bruno, an alpha male Chimpanzee, escaped from the Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary in Sierra Leone and vanished into the jungle. Orphaned by hunters, he had spent his life among humans and survived the ravages of Sierra Leone’s civil war before his disappearance. Today he is a local legend.
Author Paul Glynn has turned Bruno’s astonishing story into a children’s book with over forty illustrations. A portion of the proceeds from King Bruno will go towards supporting the sanctuary.
The book includes an introduction by Dr. Jane Goodall.
