Cute. The book goes through a series of plans for getting a gorilla out of one's bathtub, only to conclude that the best thing is to ask him, "Please, get out of my bathtub." My daughter enjoyed the silliness of the scenario.

This clever book provides a humorous look at creative problem solving. Great read-aloud to preschoolers through 1st grade, listeners are remninded of the value of perserverance as well as good manners.

Very, very funny (kinda sorta like the way If You Give a Mouse a Cookie is) and a suitable length for storytime. Illustrations might not reallybe my taste, but bright and high contrast, so good for storytime! Plus, reinforces the concept of "please!" Will be trying this one out there soon.

John Hall can still remember the first book he ever read. It was Harry The Dirty Dog. Since that day, he's always loved reading. When he was in fifth grade, he decided he was going to be a writer when he grew up and wrote his first novel, The Mystery of the Leopard's Eyes (unfortunately, it was never published and to this day, still sits in his desk drawer).
