This picture book is intended for Nursery aged children. It is about a gorilla from the zoo that causes havoc behind the back of the guard by letting all of the animals out and following him home. This illustrations are dark in color. There are no words until the last page. This book is really hard to "read" to kids. Are you supposed to make up a story yourself or is it meant for kids to be able to read to themselves? The illustration is very boring and dark and it lacks excitement. Only went thru this book once. Luckily did not buy it, this is why libraries are good. Guess the moral of the story is never turn your back on a gorilla or he will follow you home with the rest of the zoo.
