The true and hilarious story of how Gerald Durrell and his wife set up their own zoo. Journeying to the Cameroons, he and his wife, helped by the renowned Fon of Bafut, managed to collect 'plenty beef.' Their difficulties began when they found themselves back at home, with Cholmondely the chimpanzee, Bug-Eye the bush-baby, and other founder members... and nowhere to put them

A lovely book to read aloud. It was a funny, descriptive and the fon of bafat is a wonderful charter who really does come alive with Durrels fantastic descriptive writing.
A really great read
