Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“No one renders primates with more faithful detail or surrealhumanity than Browne.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Once there was a very special gorilla who had almost everything he needed. There was only one thing he didn’t have: a friend. With no other gorillas at the zoo, the keepers try something new. Will the gigantic ape strike a bond with another sort of creature, one as tiny and innocent as a kitten? Sparked by the story of a real gorilla who learned to sign, Little Beauty is a celebration of a most surprising friendship.

Synopsis:

A gorilla who seems to have everything he needs one day shows in sign language that he is lonely and would like to have a friend. So his keeper brings him a cat. Soon the gorilla and the cat become good friends. Full color.
