Synopsis

Ding Dong Gorilla by Michelle Robinson

DING DONG - there's a gorilla on the doorstep! And when a gorilla pays a visit, it's not long before mischief and mayhem ensue . . . He may look fierce, but all he wants to do is play football, or watch a film or make a cake . . . which results in one monstrous MESS! Michelle Robinson's fabulously funny text is matched by Leonie Lord's bright and feisty art style to create a book with BIG impact.

Reviews

Leonie Lord's bold and expressive illustrations and clever page design really add to the storytelling. * The School Librarian * One of the best books for this age group we have ever come across. * Bookbag * Wildly funny... strong crayon lines and colour tell us lots of extra detail. * Books for Keeps * Leonie Lord's accompanying pastel illustrations are perfect. * Independent on Sunday * A great big slice of chaos, fun, good news and bad, all told in a confessional tone that will even have big cheeky monkeys clutching their sides. * Daily Record * An absolute must read book that is hilariously funny and could easily be read over and over again. * Little Fiction Fascination *

About the Author

Michelle Robinson

Michelle Robinson grew up in Gloucestershire and loved making up stories and being silly. She put that to good use by getting a job as a copywriter. She wrote over 6000 radio adverts before moving on to television and the web and devised websites for big brands like Coca-Cola, Guinness and Cadburys. She soon got bored though, which is when she started writing funny stories for children and their parents to enjoy reading umpteen times. Her picture book There's a Lion in My Cornflakes won the Sainsbury's Children's Book Awards. Michelle lives in Frome with her husband, young son and daughter and a tragically empty tin of Quality Street.
