About this title

Synopsis:

Anthony Browne’s incomparable artwork illuminates the deeply satisfying story of a lonely girl, a friendly gorilla, and their enchanted night out.

Hannah spends all of her time reading gorilla books, watching gorilla TV shows, and drawing gorilla pictures. She has gorillas on her bedside lamp
and even on her box of cereal. Hannah loves gorillas and longs to see a real one, but her father is always too busy - or too tired - to take her to the zoo. Then, on the night before her birthday, something extraordinary happens - and Hannah’s wish comes gloriously true.

From the Inside Flap:

Illus. in full color. "Children feel neglected when parents are preoccupied with other concerns, and young Hannah is no exception. But Hannah has an imaginative outlet--she adores gorillas. On the eve of her birthday, a toy gorilla magically comes to life, and together the two swing through the trees to the zoo. An exuberant story of a lonely girl and a winsome ape."--(starred) School Library Journal. "Browne has created a picture book that explores real emotions with a beautifully realized child protagonist."--(starred) Horn Book.
