One Gorilla: A Counting Book

Front Cover
Candlewick Press, Feb 12, 2013 - Juvenile Fiction - 32 pages
26 Reviews
Primo primate artist Anthony Browne is at the top of his form with a simple and simply fascinating array of creatures for kids to count.

What better attention-getter for small children than primates in all their variety? And who better to render them than Anthony Browne? In this elegant counting book, the author-illustrator outdoes himself with a vivid presentation of primates from gorillas to gibbons, macaques to mandrills, ring-tailed lemurs to spider monkeys. With his striking palette, exquisite attention to detail, and quirky flair for facial expressions, Anthony Browne slyly extends the basic number concept into a look at similarities and differences portraying an extended family we can count ourselves part of.
