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.

Industry Reviews

The illustrations express clear emotion in this perfect read for young children about friendship.
--Columbus Dispatch

Extraordinary pencil and watercolor illustrations brilliantly depict the emotions of a lonely gorilla.
--Library Media Connection

No one renders primates with more faithful detail or surreal humanity than Browne.
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Exquisitely detailed art that blends magic and realism.
--Booklist

A sweet quirky story of a deep and unlikely friendship enhanced by emotionally evocative art.
--San Francisco Chronicle

Luscious, creamy pages provide contrast for the large, well-spaced font and the dark furry figure... Children will chuckle as they view the pair doing everything together ...Browne's exquisite interpretation of a real life gorilla is a welcome progression.
--School Library Journal (starred review)
