Cliff Hanger and the Big Ape and the Banana Drop is a book from the The Adventures of Cliff Hanger book series.
We find Cliff Hanger where we left him last, hanging from a cliff. Suddenly, below him, Cliff sees a very big ape. Quickly, Cliff reaches into his backpack and extracts his trusty survival manual. Using his expert decoding skills, Cliff begins to read. He reads, "When you see a big ape, disguise yourself as a very big banana. Then let yourself drop.". And he did just that. Has brave Cliff Hanger made his escape at last? The ape peels the banana and sees Cliff, who thanks him. Then he realizes that it isn't real banana, it was a man in a banana suit. The ape squishes Cliff out of the suit and he lands back on the cliff.
