Monkey Mountain ~ Lisa Passen

Monkey Mountain by Lisa Passen

Monkey Mountain is the (sort of) true story of the Great Monkey Escape from Frank Buck's Jungle Camp on Long Island, NY. A hilarious fictional telling of a true event, Monkey Mountain is set in the midst of the Great Depression. Its various characters' interconnecting stories center around twelve-year old Nancy Johnson and the Monkey Mountain at Frank Buck's Zoo. Excitement enters Nancy's world as she is caught up in the mayhem that ensues as hundreds of monkeys escape from the zoo. Like the fugitive monkeys, Nancy and the others learn a thing or two about breaking free to follow a dream. Some will, some won't, and some can't.
