       Additional Information  
      Frank Simian is not only a mountain gorilla who can talk, but also has advanced degrees that enable him to counsel humans online. Frank is the prisoner of a government facility and one of an alarming number of mountain gorillas fighting extinction. As a young jungle boy learns the astonishing intellectual capacity of the apes his people kill, and a Jesuit priest questions the differences between man and ape, Frank struggles with the secret to a terrible murder.

    Follow Frank's journey of personal transformation from the highlands of the Congo, to Vatican City, and beyond.

    Hopefully, this story will inspire and encourage readers to support the plight of all endangered animals, and to see them in a new light.
