One Gorilla: A Counting Book

author: Anthony Browne

What better attention-getter for small children than primates in all their variety? And who better to render them than Anthony Browne? In this elegant counting book, the author-illustrator outdoes himself with a vivid presentation of primates from gorillas to gibbons, macaques to mandrills, ring-tailed lemurs to spider monkeys. With his striking palette, exquisite attention to detail, and quirky flair for facial expressions, Anthony Browne slyly extends the basic number concept into a look at similarities and differences—portraying an extended family we can count ourselves part of.

“Browne’s exquisite precision, with delicate hatching of fur and careful stippled delineation of facial lines, becomes jubilant with color and personality.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)
