All young readers will delight at knowing the trick the animals play on the unsuspecting zoo keeper! It’s bedtime and the zoo keeper sets off to lock the animals up for the night. But, the gorilla has a clever plan. When bedtime comes, will everyone be in their beds? Don’t you believe it!
Good Night, Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann
'Good night, Gorilla', says the night watchman as he finishes his rounds at the zoo. But Gorilla has other ideas, deftly pick-pocketing the watchman's keys and letting himself out of his cage, whilst letting Elephant, Lion, Hyena, Giraffe and Armadillo out too! The weary watchman makes his way home and into bed...unaware that his friends from the zoo are right behind him.
A calm yet amusing tale for bedtime, with wonderfully soft illustrations and beautiful hidden details to discover, Good Night, Gorilla won the 1994 Cuffie award for "Most Likely to Succeed in Years Ahead” and is now a modern classic that is a must in every child's library. Junior magazine also listed it in their top 100 children’s books.
