Description


Unbelemurable...Quirky, original illustrations compliment the storytelling in a book that both children and adults will love and learn from.” —Daniel Flynn, Oakland Zoo/My Rainforest, My World Program

Award-winning writer and illustrator Andrea Antinori takes us on a whimsical journey that marries fiction and fact as he explores the history, habits, and habitats of lemurs, one of the funniest (and most fun to draw) animals on the planet.

Have you ever heard a lemur sing? Did you know that in the morning lemurs sunbathe while doing yoga and worshiping the sun? And some can even levitate. In this whimsical, fictional take on lemurs, which incorporates many true facts, award-winning writer and illustrator Andrea Antinori amusingly chronicles the history, habits, and quirks of one of the most unusual animals on the planet. The lemurs’ story begins fifty million years ago, when they left Africa on the back of a sperm whale and landed in Madagascar (maybe)…and the rest is an unnatural history. Comprehensive educational backmatter presents amazing (and true) facts about these incredible and seriously endangered animals.

Praise For…


“It’s only fitting that a story depicting the natural history of one of the most unique groups of primates is told in a way that is unbelemurable! So much of lemurs’ behavior and evolution is strange but true, so it’s only right that Andrea Antinori’s The Lives of Lemurs blends fact with fantasy. Quirky, original illustrations compliment the storytelling in a book that both children and adults will love and learn from.” 
— Daniel Flynn, Oakland Zoo/My Rainforest, My World Program
