Gorilla by Anthony Browne
Endearing story about a little girl whose father never has time for her. She wishes for a (real) gorilla for her birthday but gets a soft toy one from daddy. Not being too pleased about this she tosses it aside before going to bed where it changes into a real live one during the night. The story goes on to tell how this gorilla takes the little girl out on an adventure for a birthday treat. Gorilla does all the things that a daddy should.
