Kirby Steinberg is the new girl at Forest Edge High School, but she's not just any new girl. Kirby comes with three talking apes in tow: Chuck, the super-intelligent orangutan ego; Go-Go, the always hungry gorilla id; and Knobby, the sensitive babe-magnet chimpanzee superego. Kirby claims that her three talking ape companions are the results of her scientist father's experiments with accellerated leaning abilities, but Nickels, Kirby's new best friend and reporter for the school paper, suspects that may not be the whole truth.


  • Banana Sunday - Collects #1-4. "Kirby Steinberg is having a bit of trouble fitting into her new school. Sure, there's the usual interest/antagonism associated with being from somewhere else, but this time the new kid also happens to be the guardian for three talking monkeys." - WorldCat - ISBN 1932664378
