This sweet memoir begins with a wash of unexpected news over a dad and his two kids. Mom's been having an affair, with another woman, and doesn't want custody. Dad's brother is diagnosed with breast cancer and dies soon after. What's a dad who is grieving the loss of the two most significant people in his life to do? Pack up the kids and take them on a trek around the world while introducing them to some of the most critically endangered animals. Because that's just it, isn't it? We are all endangered-- just a moment, a careless choice, an uncontrollable moment away from our whole world changing. the humanity of this book, the way this family grabs your around the neck and chokes you with their own monkey dancing, is heartbreaking and heart warming.
