Little Beauty

author/illustrator: Anthony Browne

Once there was a very special gorilla who had almost everything he needed. There was only one thing he didnít have: a friend. With no other gorillas at the zoo, the keepers try something new. Will the gigantic ape strike a bond with another sort of creature, one as tiny and innocent as a kitten? Sparked by the story of a real gorilla who learned to sign, Little Beauty is a celebration of a most surprising friendship.

"Luscious, creamy pages provide contrast for the large, well-spaced font and the dark furry figure... Children will chuckle as they view the pair doing everything together...Browne's exquisite interpretation of a real life gorilla is a welcome progression." ó School Library Journal (starred review)
