       Additional Information  
      Emily, a chimp, is the only attentive student in Mr. Fatigay's class in the heart of South Africa. Her desire to learn, gather information, and better herself through knowledge touches the heart of her teacher, and gives Amy Flint-his alluringly hateful fiance-a competitor in the race for the schoolteacher's hand in marriage. This classic work of biting satire and radiant prose playfully uses this strange courtship to illuminate two abiding kinds of souls, the faithful and the unfaithful, and shows how man's soul deepens in the presence of love.
