Synopses & Reviews
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.
For use in schools and libraries only. When a gorilla who knows sign language tells his keepers that he is lonely, they bring him a very special friend.
