Little Gorilla is one of the biggest and best little books on the market. Its the story of a new born gorilla who is adored by family, friends and everyone else he meets along the way. Little gorilla's will be little gorilla's, but no matter how mischievous the our star character gets, everyone still loves him. Even when the little gorilla begins to grow and gets HUGE, everyone still loves him. The point of course being that the love of the gorilla's friends and family is unconditional. What makes this story special for children is its simplicity, humor and cuteness. What's great for adults is what nice quick read the book is before bedtime. Little Gorilla was originally written in 1976 by Ruth Bornstein and 40 years later remains a classic.
