Publisher Summary

“The heart-tugging true story of how YouTube star Ninita—a deaf, orphaned pygmy marmoset (the smallest type of monkey)—found family, friendship, and a forever home! Illustrated in full color.

Ninita is the only known deaf pygmy marmoset in the world, but that doesn’t stop her from making friends and chasing her next adventure! Abandoned by her parents and rescued by the RSCF, this tiny, curious monkey loves exploring her habitat. And when she meets Mr. Big—another pygmy marmoset—she has finally found a friend who likes to eat, climb, and play as much as she does. A YouTube celebrity, Ninita’s videos have been viewed nearly 2 million times! “

  • What is your favorite thing about Ninita?

    Ninita inspires me! Like Ninita, I also have a disability (Type 1 diabetes), and this can make life a challenge some days, but Ninita reminds me to take things at my own pace, be joyful, and find beauty everywhere.

  • What part of creating this book did you most enjoy?

    My favorite part about writing this book was getting to know the incredible staff of the Rare Species Conservatory through our talks about Ninita; this publishing experience culminated in my going to visit Rare Species and meeting Ninita, who loved my hair and jumped up to style it the moment she saw me! I feel so lucky to have spent time with her and to have received her trust and attention!
