This is the best book on helper-monkeys I've ever read!

(FULL DISCLOSURE: this is also the only book on helper-monkeys I've read.)

The highlight of the book is definitely the monkey who knows how to use a photocopier.

I recommend this book to anybody who likes helping and/or monkeys. I am 30 years old.
