Cherry Marsden was helping her Professor father with an unusual experiment—bringing up Julie, a baby chimp, as a human baby.
Julie returns in sequel The Tennis Chimp. Cherry and her father move to a new town and Cherry joins a tennis club. But she doesn’t have a partner for the doubles tournament. So she partners with Julie, but some club members dislike the idea of a chimp entering the championship, and Mrs Hawkins in particular is out to stop them.
