Though Tom finds success â€” both in his plant and in his personal life â€” he learns from Andy that successful improvement is endless and eternal.This edition includes study questions after each chapter to support your learning and help you tell some of your own stories.

Description : Andy s botanist father is sent to Singapore just before the Japanese invasion in 1942 to collect botanical specimens, and, unable to collect them in the high jungle trees, he gets a trained monkey to help him. Pix becomes Andy s pet and companion. When his parents are dragged from their house by the Japanese military secret police, Andy flees into the jungle with Pix, who finds food for him. He is terrified and desperate, and only his love for Pix keeps him going. Things change when he meets Emmeline, an Australian girl around his own age who has fled with her amah after her parents were killed. The amah is unwell and lying under a tree and Andy soon realises that she is dead. From this point the children face a huge number of problems in their attempts to survive, at first even to get along together, and to escape the military. Despite their plight, the story has many funny moments, most featuring Pix, who is a wonderfully appealing character. Pix and Me is based on a true story.
