Goodnight gorilla

Here is another very much loved bedtime book 
We have read this a million times, at any time of the day. 
It’s a must have and a perfect gift which your friends will thank you for.
It’s incredible how little it’s known though.

The Story
A young Gorilla ‘helps’ his zoo keeper to check the animals before bed, opening the cages in order to have a nice, cosy sleep all together.
It’s essentially a wordless book, packed with details that little ones will love to point out through the pages. 
I found myself spotting new ones after months.

But above all children will love Gorilla. 
It took me a while to understand why both my daughters loved it so much, and it’s as simple as that, they identify with him. 
It was also real fun to discover that all the children we gave it to where enjoying it in the SAME exact way.
This is truly another magical book.
This gem started a true obsession for gorillas in my house, be ready:)
