My Mum Always Looks After Me So Much!
Publisher: Frances Lincoln Children’s Books
Little gorilla has to go to the doctor’s to get an injection, but he doesn’t mind too much because the doctor is nice. Getting an injection is all part of Mum looking after little gorilla, although sometimes he thinks perhaps she looks after him too much – like when she tells him he has to eat broccoli, or when she makes him wear an extra jumper when he gets a cold.
When little gorilla and his mum get to the doctor, not only is the injection really not that painful at all, but the nice doctor gives him a stick thing that smells of strawberries! It’s the best thing ever.
Yet when little gorilla loses his strawberry stick, Mum is on the case to solve the problem...
