A zany, funny and heart-warming read-aloud picture book about a gorilla who comes to stay, from the internationally acclaimed illustrator of Julia Donaldson’s What the Ladybird Heard.
Hooray! Gorilla has come to stay. He crashes through the door full of excitement and anticipation. And at first he’s not disappointed. The family have thought of everything to make him comfortable. But then it begins to snow… and although Gorilla likes the look and taste of snow, he’s not a natural at all the snow-related activities they try. With skiing and skating, he wibbles and wobbles all over the place before falling over. “Ooo, ooo, ooo,” he cries. He doesn’t like it. Even his snowman falls on top of him! So how can the little boy make him feel better? By finding something Gorilla is good at, that’s how. And “Ooo, ooo, ooo”, it turns out to be something that’s very exciting!
The illustrator behind famous titles by Julia Donaldson such as The Singing Mermaid and The Rhyming Rabbit proves she is an author in her own right with Ooo, ooo, ooo, Gorilla.
