The Lovereading4Kids comment

This highly comical story will have you chuckling with amusement throughout. Vincent is a gorilla that loses his chest hair. The soft furs found on every page combined with a clever peep-through design make Vincent the Vain irresistible.

Synopsis

Vincent the Vain by Sam Lloyd

When Vincent's celebrated chest hair starts to dwindle and fall out, his verve for life takes an unexpected sky dive too. But his friends soon find a way to put the cheer back into Vincent's world view and the way he sees himself.
