As Lewis, a mischievous, teenage lemur and his younger cousin, Clessie are out juddlepupping (running, jumping, bouncing, playing) they suddenly lose all track of time and find themselves far from their wabidumps (homes). Lewis isn’t worried. However, the ever-watching, Cirgussie, a 350 year old Galapagos Tortoise and Caretaker of all the animals is.
“…Sitting in front of the Ungellometer, (machine to track animals around the earth), Cirgussie shook his head in despair. “Oh me…oh my…there goes Lewis. Just when I thought I could rest a bit tonight…” [excerpt from Lewis the Lemur, The Belly of the Beast]
After Lewis drops Clessie off at his wabidump, he decides to cut across the open plains. Here is where the real adventure is about to begin. As the moon rises, Lewis realizes he’s in the midst of a strange monster. Is this part of the dreaded Uprite (human)?
“…Lewis always thought he knew better and did not like to listen. So here he was…or better yet, where was he?...”
