Little Beauty

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Walker Books

When a very special gorilla learns to use sign language, he is able to ask his keepers for anything he needs but what he wants most of all is a friend.

A tiny kitten called Beauty becomes his constant companion and they do everything together.

One day though, the gorilla loses his temper and the keepers threaten to take Beauty away. The big hearted kitty has other ideas and uses great ingenuity to make sure she is not separated from her soul mate.

A stunning picture book which is both touching and surprising and shows Anthony Browne's characteristic balance between gentle humour and meaningful message, which in this case is the value of friendship and loyalty.

Browne's trademark illustrations are wonderfully evocative.
