This is the heart-warming tale of a gorilla and his tiny friend, from the master picturebook-maker. A very special gorilla is taught a very special skill: sign language. He appears to have everything he needs, but one day he signs that he is said and needs a friend. His keepers bring him a tiny cat called Beauty and the two of them become inseparable. But when the gorilla gets angry and causes damage to the TV, will his keepers think him unfit to be friends with such a small, defenceless animal? Not if Beauty can think fast and prove what a special friendship they share...

About The Author

Anthony has won many prizes for his work, including the Hans Christian Andersen Award in 2000, for his services to children's literature - the first British illustrator to win the prize since 1956.

      Comments about Little Beauty:

      My 3 year old grandson loves this book. I had to explain the 'angry' section and why it occurred. Also I needed to explain why 'Little Beauty' said he had broken the television and not the Gorilla. The concept is a little old for very young readers, but it is a beautiful story and children absolutely love both the pictures and the story.

          The kitten tells a lie about damaging TV. Not a good thing to teach to children. Will not give it as a gift
