This is the true tale of Alice Kirk and Nicko, the baby vervet monkey that was found abandoned on her home farm in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. Alice and her husband Jack shared their home with a menagerie of animals – both domestic and wild! Alice agreed to raise Nicko and he remained there as her companion until he died of old age at 17. The story encompasses his interaction with the other animals of the household, as well as humans. It carries the reader through a range of adventures and emotions from the wonderfully whacky and hilarious to alarming and sometimes sad. Author Penny Haw is the granddaughter of Alice and throughout her childhood, Penny was entertained with the stories of Nicko’s escapades. She now retells these tales in the first person through Alice’s ‘voice’. Children (of all ages) will enjoy them, and the relationship between Nicko and Alice, and Nicko and the other animal species, will fascinate all animal lovers.

Situated only 4 miles southeast of the bustling cosmopolitan city of Leeds lies a jewel in the crown of British stately homes. Set in 1,200 acres of rolling parkland and woods is Temple Newsam House, once described as the Hampton Court of the North.The estate has survived almost 900 years of history. Although first mentioned in the Domesday Book, it was the Knights Templar who gave the name to the land. The house that now stands on the site was begun in 1518 and has witnessed many events: the execution for treason of one of its owners; the birth of Lord Darnley, unlucky husband of Mary Queen of Scots; the Civil War rivalry of a family; the home of a flirtatious mistress of the Prince of Wales (later George IV); and the suffering of the First World War, when it was used as a convalescent home for wounded soldiers.The house and estate is now owned by the Leeds City Council and is open as a public park for all to enjoy. The house itself is part of Leeds Museums and Galleries and displays many different collections and exhibitions. On the estate is a working farm, known as Home Farm, which is the largest working rare breed center in the UK and is a popular attraction for many visitors.
