My favorite chimp was David Graybeard.

This is a good story and adventure. I feel like I am right there with Jane Goodall and the chimps and I wish I was. Watching these chimps and learning about their different personalities and seeing all this would be amazing. I was definitely drawn into learning about every one of them and felt happy when something wonderful happened and not so happy when tragedy and sickness occurred. The fate of Mr. McGregor was particularly moving.

The story's a bit anthropomorphized, but with such a close relation to humans, I know that many of these descriptions and behaviors aren't too far off. It's amazing what she learned and what we continue to learn.
