Book cover Evangeline Mudd and the Golden-Haired Apes of the Ikkinasti Jungle
David Elliott (2004) , 160-200 pages
Illustrated by Andrea Wesson
Audience: Intermediate (4th-6th grade)
Category: Adventure, Fantasy, Humor


Evangeline Mudd's parents are...well, they're not exactly what you'd call normal. For one thing, they're primatologists. (That means they study apes for a living.) For another thing, Dr. and Dr. Mudd think that Evangeline should be raised just like a golden- haired ape. Yikes! By the time she was five, Evangeline could eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with her feet and color with her hands -- both at once! (Do not try this at home.) By the time she was six, she could brachiate. (That means she could move from tree to tree by swinging on vines -- another thing you should not try at home.) Wonder what will happen when she's seven? Whatever it is, you can bet that it's something you shouldn't try at home!
