Synopses & Reviews
Here is a list of the things I love.
Two butterflies among my flowers--and one gorilla.
Tree budgerigars in my house--and one gorilla.
One very playful gorilla keeps popping up in gardens, forests, jungles, and even people's houses as he takes the reader on a wild counting adventure. He hides--as much as a gorilla can!--along with all the other creatures as they dart, leap, and peer from the most surprising places, waiting to be counted. A chart at the end of the book provides a key to all the animals and their corresponding numbers.
Soft, precise illustrations characterize this colorful counting book. One Gorilla is a 1990 New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year.
"The smiling gorilla wanders through house, garden, jungle, woods, storm and sea, blissfully counting and being counted till the numbers equal 10. Delightful." --The New York Times Book Review.
"Fun...Sweet and visually playful...great to share aloud." --Booklist
One very playful gorilla takes readers on a wild counting adventure as he makes his way through exotic jungles, lush gardens, and a snow-covered forest full of hidden creatures.
