Ronald Gordon King-Smith OBE, Ho.

Crowstarving was the ideal job for Spider - he was on his own - yet never alone, for all around him were animals of one sort or another. Discovered as a foundling in a lambing pen, Spider Sparrow grows up surrounded by animals. From sheep and horses to wild otters and foxes, Spider loves them all, even the crows must scare away the newly sown wheat. Farmer Hoggett thinks the piglet he wins at the fair is just one to be fattened up for the freezer until his old sheepdog, Fly, takes Babe under her wing and starts to train him to be a sheepdog too.

Dick King-Smith, beloved author of Babe: The Gallant Pig,  returns with a witty and touching tale about the different shapes and sizes a family can take. When Archibald Peregrine Edmund Spring-Russell (Ape, for short) finds himself living alone for the first time in his life, he's finally free to do exactly as he pleases. And nothing pleases this wealthy old English gentleman with an enormous estate and a Rolls-Royce more than buying twelve big, beautiful brown hens to keep in the living room. But Ape doesn't stop there. Soon there are rabbits and guinea pigs in the dining room, canaries in the music room, a noisy talking parrot in the kitchen, and a puppy who seems to be everywhere! Just when Ape's house is about to burst with little beasties, Joe and Jake--father and son Gypsies--lend a helping hand. But it takes a household disaster for Ape to realize he finally has the family he never had. With trademark Dick King-Smith humor, short chapters, and large type, this easy-to-read story is perfect for independent readers.

I've loved this book for as long as I could remember, everyone should have a copy of this for their kids. It is sweet, sincere, lighthearted, and remarkable original. Kids will be able to read it on their own, but I suggest reading this to your children because it's a lot of fun. Enjoy!

Meet Archibald Peregrine Edmund Spring-Russell aka Mr. Ape, owner of Penny Royal, a 15 bedroom mansion/stately home in Gloucestershire, England. Ape is an eccentric old man in his 70's with long legs and arms hence his nickname kind of suits him. His children who, according to him, were not very nice are now grown and with the kids gone, his wife of 30 years decided to leave also. Does he miss her? No!

Ape closes up all the rooms except for the kitchen and one bathroom, bringing his four poster bed into the kitchen. As his wife left she dismissed all the servants so Ape is now truly on his own. Never having been allowed animals or choice of food, he now enjoys cooking for himself. It also occurs to him that he doesn't have to buy eggs anymore but could in fact keep his own chickens. Where are they going to live though? In the living room of course right under the watchful eye of Mrs. Spring-Russell (portrait).

Read the book to discover what other animals Ape brings home to live in the house one of which is Uncle Bob, a very talkative parrot. See how he makes friends with a gypsy father and son, Joe and Jake, staying close by. Celebrate his 75th birthday with him and then see what happens when "disaster" strikes.

Good read for the whole family. The only part I don't like is the break-up of the marriage which is not experienced but told as an event in the past. A great find in our local library. Thanks, Liz

Mr. Ape is an eccentric man.His wife has left him and dismissed all his servants.Although most people would be sad that their wife would leave them after 30 years of marriage,Mr. Ape was delighted at the idea that his wife was leaving him as she was very bossy.Apparently,Mr. Ape is very fond of animals and bought 12 hens.Gypsies named Jake and his father Joe are living quite near his place.Jake's donkey was roaming near Mr. Ape's compound so Jake arrived at Mr. Ape's house.That's how they got acquainted.Later,Mr. Ape bought some rabbits and guinea pigs.Wow! That's a lot.I bet he's crazy.Then he gets even more crazy-rearing canaries,a puppy,a foal and lastly a talking parrot who is good at immitating voices.I like the parts that the parrot immitated Mr. Ape's voice as it will trick Jake and Joe.So humourus!! Mr. Ape's pets soon increases as they will breed.So,he decides to have a pet sale.A lot of letters keep pouring into his house.Soon,he has a few pets.But when Mr. Ape's house is accidentally burned,everyone accuses Jake and Joe.Luckily,the animals were saved.Now it's up to Mr. Ape-is he going to follow the gypsies,Jake and Joe or will he stay? Read this book and you'll find out.This is a truly amazing book.It really touched my heart.

Mr Ape is a fab book. If you can get your hands on it, I'd read it. I haven't read many of Dick King-Smith's stories, but this is probably one of the best books I've ever read. I love animals. I have a rat of my own, and my sister has a cat. Anyone who loves animals, like me, READ IT!
