The Lovereading4Kids comment

It’s great to see some very good early reader books published some years ago coming back into print with this terrific new children’s publisher, Catnip, under the Happy Cat imprint. Perfect for those just starting to read alone and to read aloud to their parents. Entitled ‘Happy Cat First Readers’ do look out for others as they’re published.

If you like The Gorilla Suit why not take a look at The Littlest Pirate and Hammerheads too.


The Gorilla Suit by Victor Kelleher

Tom was given a gorilla suit for his birthday. He wears it everywhere, even to the zoo. Then he gets to meet the real gorillas and things get very complicated indeed.
