Description

In this sequel to GingerNutz: The Jungle Memoir of a Model Orangutan, we see the ginger-haired beauty cavorting about the famous landmarks of Paris and visiting the ateliers of storied fashion designers.

She’s back! After becoming a breakout star in the fashion world, GingerNutz, the first Bornean-born orangutan supermodel, has landed in Paris for a whirlwind week of fittings, photo shoots and parties. Though born in humble jungle surroundings, the precocious primate quickly adjusts to life at the upper echelons of the fashion world: bookings at all the maisons de haute couture, front-row seats to the latest theater shows and hotel suites at the Ritz.

In this sequel to GingerNutz: The Jungle Memoir of a Model Orangutan, we see the ginger-haired beauty cavorting about the famous landmarks of Paris – Notre Dame Cathedral, Café de Flore – and visiting the ateliers of storied fashion designers including Azzedine Alaïa, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Thierry Mugler, Comme des Garçons and Dries van Noten. Being the hottest model of the moment, GingerNutz will also model the latest haute couture styles, chosen at the Fall 2018 shows in Paris by Grace Coddington. Michael Roberts’ charming text and hand-drawn illustrations capture the wonder and whimsy of a glamorous but still naïve young girl’s adventures in Paris.

The story of GingerNutz was inspired by legendary model and fashion editor Grace Coddington, the longtime creative director of American Vogue and a close friend of the author.
