  • The Animal Rescue Squad - Hand-Me-Down Chimp

  • Best friends Eliza, Lisa, Molly and Abby are passionate for all things furry, four-legged or feathered. They are THE ANIMAL RESCUE SQUAD. Their mission? To fight for the rights of all animals great and small. . . When Lisa decides to take care of a cheeky two-year-old chimp called Gumbo, she has no idea he'll be such a handful! He swings from the lampshades, climbs up the curtains, speaks in sign laguage. . . Yes! He really does! And it's up to THE ANIMAL RESCUE SQUAD to find him a very special home.

Mel Friedman writes with his wife Ellen Weiss. Together they have written many popular books for young readers. Over the years they have taken in many stray animals, among them dogs named Big, Little and Archie.
