“A beautifully told story of a sad, lonely gorilla living in a zoo. Using sign language, he tells his keepers, 'I want a friend,' and the zookeepers give him a little kitten to care for. The illustrations express clear emotion in this perfect read for young children about friendship.”
— Kristi Tiedt, Butterfly Books, De Pere, WI

Description


"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.
