Little Beauty

author/illustrator: Anthony Browne

A USBBY Outstanding International Book
An Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award Winner
Three starred reviews (BOOKLIST, KIRKUS REVIEWS, SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL)

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.

"No one renders primates with more faithful detail or surreal humanity than Browne."--KIRKUS REVIEWS (starred review) (Ages 3-5)
