Snub is a young female gorilla, somewhat jealous because her mother is occupied with a new baby, curious of the world around her, a world that is being reshaped by shaking ground and mountains that bleed fire, and most terrifyingly by a new form of predator that walks on two legs; when her mother is killed Snub finds herself in charge of her baby brother--and accompanied by one of the not-gorillas, a very young female who has been orphaned by the violence of her own kind.

The story is about the ancient ages of the lives of apes before humans. An ape named Snub was curious and intelligent. Him and his family went through a storm full of tremors. Once he woke up his family has disappeared. So he decided to find them on his own, little does he know a new predator is around stalking him and watching his every move. Incredible book, it really was great for a late night read, really recommend it! 5/5 Stars. @momo of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

Set thousands of years ago, this story follows a young gorilla living in Africa during the time of explosive volcanoes and the entrance of man. Snub is a sweet gorilla that just wants the attention of her mother, and when she ends up being the caregiver for her baby sister AND a young human, she has her work cut out for her. This is a beautiful story, written in verse, in a tumultuous but interesting time period. Eliot Schrefer has outdone himself with this fourth book in his series!
