Gorilla – A classic story brought alive for you
May 21, 2012

A lonely little girl spends a magical night with a very special friend in this enchanting book by former Children’s Laureate, Anthony Browne

Suitable for children aged 7 – 11 years; Gorilla is a wonderful story full of sorrow, friendship, joy, wonder and ultimately happiness.  It also invites you into the magical world of Anthony Browne, where things aren’t always quite what they seem.  Anthony Browne is renowned for his beautiful illustrations which are full of wit and humour.  You can explore the gorilla hero of the story in three “feely” pictures whilst the audio description opens up the wonder of the illustrations and allows you to fully immerse yourself in Anthony Browne’s world.

We’ve also given lots of interesting information in five extra tracks covering topics such as why Anthony Browne loves gorillas so much and his use of famous works of art within his illustrations.  
Gorilla is perfect for primary school children who love a story which will simply enchant and engage them.  It’s also ideal for anyone who wants to delve a little bit deeper into the themes of the story and talk about them with friends and family.

Gorilla is available in the library now. Don’t miss out on the chance to enjoy this classic title over the summer.
