Celebrate thirty years of a classic picture book by one of today’s most celebrated author-illustrators! A special anniversary edition.
Hannah loves gorillas and longs to see a real one. Unfortunately, her father is always too busy — or too tired — to take her to the zoo. But on the night before her birthday, something extraordinary happens and Hannah’s wish finally comes true. Anthony Browne’s classic story of a girl’s moonlit night of adventure, courtesy of a surprising and kindly friend, returns in a larger trim size with striking cover art by the artist for the book’s thirtieth anniversary.
Anthony Browne has painted a new cover for the 30th-anniversary edition of one of his most touching and memorable picture books, Gorilla. … This new jacket is as good an excuse as any to introduce this wonderful book to any child from age 4 to 10 who might otherwise miss it. —The Wall Street Journal
If you don’t have it, the 30th-anniversary edition of this classic 1983 story is worth adding to your child’s library. … Illustrations perfectly reveal Hannah’s longing and the trepidation of a child asking for something when she already knows the answer: No. —San Antonio Express-News
