I am trying to locate a children's book that was read to me by my grandmother published sometime before the year 2000 for certain but possibly much early than that. Anyways the plot centers around a smaller mustachioed gentelmen dressed in safari gear looking for some rare sub-species of monster. He looks all over the world and gets into some pretty hairy situations but finally retires to his study in defeat only to find the monster there, which turns out to be a very small and cuddly looking creature. Anyways, one part I remember vividly is when he goes to look for the monster in a giant bird's nest, he covers himself in feathers as a disguise but the giant momma bird comes back and falls in love with him. Please help me!
