Comic book publishers know it, readers know it, and even Hollywood has jumped on the ape bandwagon again (see Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.)

An anti-bullying allegory writ on the largest possible scale, "Ender's Game" frames an interstellar battle between mankind and pushy ant-like aliens, called Formics, in which Earth's fate hinges on a tiny group of military cadets, most of whom haven't even hit puberty yet.
