The Lovereading4Kids comment

There’s plenty of drama and lots of surprises too in Jane Massey’s delightfully nutty picture book. Gary loves bananas, he loves them so much that on the day that something bad happens, and there are no bananas to be found, he starts seeing them everywhere. Could that be a banana barking at him from the bushes? No, it’s some little golden (banana-shaped) dogs; are those bananas squawking on the telephone wires? No, it’s a flock of birds with huge banana-like beaks. Just before the mistaken-banana-identity theme is exhausted, the story takes a turn for the even sillier, sending Gary into space in a banana-shaped rocket. Seldom have bananas provided so much entertainment, and Gary is a great comic creation; a book that will have children roaring with laughter. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Gary's Banana Drama by Jane Massey

Gary is desperate for a banana. Could that be one singing in the tree? No! It's a bird's beak! Is that a banana whizzing through the air? OUCH! NO! It's a boomerang from Billy's show! Where ARE the real bananas? Alone and hungry, Gary is about to give up until . . . WAIT! Could it be . . . the BIGGEST BANANA IN THE WORLD?

Featuring banana dogs, banana moustaches, banana space rockets and an adorable, banana-mad gorilla, Jane Massey's hilarious and vibrant picture book will make children hoot with laughter and fall in love with the hapless Gary.
