The Gorilla Who Wanted to Grow Up, Paperback Book

The Gorilla Who Wanted to Grow Up Paperback

Illustrated by Paul Howard


A heart-warming classic children's story from Jill Tomlinson about a Gorilla who's looking to the future.

Pongo is a young gorilla who lives in the mountains of Africa.

He has long glossy black hair and a black shiny nose.

But Pongo can't wait to grow up, when he will have a silver back like his father's and a big chest that he can thump.

Filled with gentle humour and comfort, Jill Tomlinson's animal stories have been enjoyed by children who want to snuggle down with a good read for decades.

This edition is stunningly illustrated by Paul Howard, making it an even more enjoyable story for young readers.
