The Gorilla Who Wanted to Grow Up

Written by Jill Tomlinson

Illustrated by Paul Howard

The Gorilla Who Wanted to Grow Up Synopsis

A heart-warming classic children's story from Jill Tomlinson about a Gorilla who's looking to the future. Pongo is a young gorilla who lives in the mountains of Africa. He has long glossy black hair and a black shiny nose. But Pongo can't wait to grow up, when he will have a silver back like his father's and a big chest that he can thump. Filled with gentle humour and comfort, Jill Tomlinson's animal stories have been enjoyed by children who want to snuggle down with a good read for decades. This edition is stunningly illustrated by Paul Howard, making it an even more enjoyable story for young readers.

About Jill Tomlinson

Jill Tomlinson Jill Tomlinson never intended to be a writer. She trained as an opera singer, and then decided to have a family whilst her voice matured. But illness intervened, and she had to find another outlet for her energies. She started on a journalism course, and by the third lesson decided she wanted to write for children. So she did! Jill Tomlinson's animal stories are much-loved and have been best-selling children's books for nearly four decades.
