Monkey who Wouldn’t Kill

Author: Drummond, Henry (1851-1897)

Along with a passion for evangelism, Drummond also had a passion for the natural sciences. As a missionary, not only did he preach to the peoples of central Africa, but he also studied and observed the African wildlife. Drummond’s travels inspired this delightful children’s book, in which a mischievous monkey wreaks havoc upon all who try to catch him. The book contains sixteen drawings by the prominent British artist, Louis Wain.
