By Corinne Fenton, Owen Swan (Illustrator)


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?
