AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A delightful and heartwarming picture book about a WWII code-breaker and his pet gibbon, from best-selling creators Corinne Fenton and Owen Swan.

'One question kept echoing in my mind - if I had to leave, what would I do with Tertius?

'This is the true story of two lives brought together by chance. Arthur Cooper, working in intelligence for the British Government in pre-war Hong Kong, rescues a small gibbon and names him Tertius. Together they escape to a safe place - but is it for always?' (Publication summary)
