A classic picture book by a Hans Christian Andersen Award-winner. Hannah loves gorillas but has never seen one. Her father's too busy to take her to the zoo - or for anything else come to that. For her birthday, Hannah asks her father for a gorilla - but is disappointed when she discovers that the gorilla she's got is just a toy one. But then something extraordinary happens...the toy turns into a real gorilla, who puts on her father's hat and coat and takes her off for a magical visit to the zoo. The next morning Hannah's happiness is complete when her father takes her to the zoo, too. Hide synopsis

fabulous illustrations and storey sadly true

by awm on Sep 1, 2008

I used to read this book to my daughter when she was little,,a very sad storey but all too real in this day and age when our children are put off due to responsibilities of work and raised by the TV. Hahhah rises above it all with her imagination and gets the birthday of her deams...very similar to Good Night Moon in the inticasies in the illustration changes between pages. The artist is exceptiional in the capturing of the primate character with incredibly accurate and lifelike drawings....this is a pice of artwork in a childrens storey! ! !
