Synopsis

Synopsis

Anthony Browne’s incomparable artwork illuminates the deeply satisfying story of a lonely girl, a friendly gorilla, and their enchanted night out.

Hannah spends all of her time reading gorilla books, watching gorilla TV shows, and drawing gorilla pictures. She has gorillas on her bedside lamp
and even on her box of cereal. Hannah loves gorillas and longs to see a real one, but her father is always too busy - or too tired - to take her to the zoo. Then, on the night before her birthday, something extraordinary happens - and Hannah’s wish comes gloriously true.

Anthony Browne has painted a new cover for the 30th-anniversary edition of one of his most touching and memorable picture books, Gorilla. ... This new jacket is as good an excuse as any to introduce this wonderful book to any child from age 4 to 10 who might otherwise miss it.
—The Wall Street Journal

If you don't have it, the 30th-anniversary edition of this classic 1983 story is worth adding to your child's library. ... Illustrations perfectly reveal Hannah's longing and the trepidation of a child asking for something when she already knows the answer: No.
—San Antonio Express-News
