really liked it

linked poems make up this picture book about a feisty and unique cat named Gorilla, a female feline who refuses to be defined by boring old cat standards. She is hardly owned by but definately companion to Cecilia who describes Gorilla in the poems. A non-poem lover might find themselves liking poetry with this book as each poem is a perfect little study of Gorilla alone in her catness or Gorilla interacting with Cecilia, and the voice is Cecilias...big and bold illustrations by Shane Evans compliment the text.
