This is a true story about Koko, a gorilla who learned to sign and can communicate love, anger, sorrow and joy. Her trainer reads picture books to her and her two favorites are “Puss In Boots” and “The Three Little Kittens.” This leads to Koko asking for a cat for her birthday. She eventually receives her kitten which she names All Ball (it doesn’t have a tail). This story about Koko and All Ball, accompanied by photographs, is not only heart-warming, it demonstrates the gorilla’s intelligence and its ability to communicate. I loved it!
