If you’re a conservationist, an animal lover, a parent, or some combination of all three, we’ve got the ideal stocking-stuffer for your littlest loved ones this holiday season. Between the covers of Professor Chip Royston’s Juji, readers young and old will find a heartwarming and inspirational tale of a young girl whose love of animals moves her to take action against deforestation. The story, driven along by beautifully colored full-page illustrations from The Indy‘s own Ben Ciccati, draws parallels between the girl’s life and the day-to-day experiences of a young monkey living in the African rainforests. And it’s those similarities between human and primate that make Juji resonate so meaningfully. Add to that the book’s Jane Goodall-approved message, and you’ve got a gift that parents will be proud to give this season. Visit inkwaterbooks.com to order.
