The perspective that a primatologist brings to an understanding of behavior is presented within an introductory framework. This well-known work establishes a comparative attitude, provides anecdotal examples of a primatologist at work, and stresses the importance of good research design and quantitative techniques. Anecdotal examples of primatologists at work are chosen to illustrate a field study (spider and howler monkeys) and experiences with a laboratory colony (snow monkeys in Texas). These discussions are designed to sensitize readers to the adventure, complexity, and some of the mechanics of actually doing primatology. The entire primate order is examined, and reader accessibility is enhanced by abundant photographs, illustrations, and an in-depth glossary.
The town of Wyse, set precisely on the border of England and Wales, is remarkable for one thing: it is the only remaining human town where magic works.

Uncovering a working magic mirror, Ava opens an unauthorized link to the twinned town of Unwyse, where she meets Howell, one of the unlucky Fair Folk who is being pursued by the terrifying Mr Bones. Discovering that they are the joint guardians of a grumpy old book that can tell the future, the new friends are unexpectedly launched headlong into an adventure to uncover the mysterious link between Mr Bones and Lord Skinner, and to find out what's happening to the waning magic that connects their two worlds.
