Summary

An intelligent ape must clear the name of her friend, the Chief of a cargo boat, when he is falsely accused of murder.

Sally Jones is not only a loyal friend, she's an extraordinary individual. In overalls or in a maharaja's turban, this unique gorilla moves among humans without speaking but understanding everything.

She and the Chief are devoted comrades who operate a cargo boat. A job they are offered pays big bucks, but the deal ends badly, and the Chief is falsely convicted of murder.

For Sally Jones this is the start of a harrowing quest for survival and to clear the Chief's name. Powerful forces are working against her, and they will do anything to protect their secrets.

Winner of the August Prize for Best Children's Book and the Nordic Council Children and Young People's Literature Prize

NOTE : The characters are all adults apart from the gorilla, who is ageless really.
NOTE : Translated with US spellings
