The Howling Monkeys: Roy Carpenter’s Expedition by Nancy K. Robinson, 2nd Scholastic paperback printing, TW2222, 1972, 64 pages.

DESCRIPTION: “How do wild monkeys sleep? Find food? Take care of their babies? And what do they do all day?
Ray Carpenter wanted to know everything about monkeys. He had hundreds of questions, and none of the books he read answered all those questions. He could not learn how wild monkeys live by watching those at the zoo, in the circus, or in scientific laboratories.
So Ray Carpenter went into the jungle to study the howling monkeys. He got a lot of answers. And he proved that it is possible to study monkeys in their jungle homes.” (from the back cover)

About vintagescholastics

I love these old Scholastics! I am a bookseller, writer, and dog-lover; live at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains of New York with my computer-programmer husband. We love motor-cycle riding, renovating our old camp on Lake Desolation, gardening, and researching our genealogy. The purpose of this blog is to highlight those beloved old books from the Scholastic Book fairs from 1950 - 1979. This will serve as a catalogue of the books, with their identifying numbers, a plot summary, and a photo of the cover; with a searchable index. I want to give all of the writers and illustrator's bios so they get credit (many were writers in the summer while on vacation from their regular schoolteaching jobs.; some are lesser known efforts by very famous people; and some are reprinted classics.) Hopefully, their fans will be able to identify favorite titles with snipets of remembered information. We will always be adding new ones, and welcome your submissions
