A tale of fun and friendship.
Harry heard the key turn in the lock. He had already made up his mind to run.
Harry is in trouble at school and doesn't like his step father or the new baby. Then he befriends Ocky, a chimpanzee from the circus. Ocky's owner won't mind if Harry borrows her for a bit will he?
But then Harry's stepfather and the police find out. Harry and the chimp are soon on the run.
