The Third Chimpanzee for Young People
Jared Diamond’s first foray into illustrated young adult nonfiction is both an explosive indictment of human nature and a hopeful case for a better survival.
With fascinating facts and his unparalleled readability, Diamond intended his book to improve the world that today’s young people will inherit. Triangle Square’s The Third Chimpanzee for Young People is for them and the future they’ll help build.
In Lizzie! Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Maxine Kumin brings a disabled heroine to life in this exciting adventure of black markets, screeching monkeys, Florida in the summertime, and the bonds of true friendship.
America, meet Lizzie Peterlinz, age 11. Paralyzed below the waist after slipping off a diving board two years ago, Lizzie does not let her wheelchair get in the way of her curiosity. She and her single mother are starting life over in a small town in Florida, where Lizzie’s hunger for knowledge and adventure lead her to some unlikely friends.
