I learned a lot about gorillas in this book. I found out that gorillas are smart like humans. They can understand sign language. They also eat fruit like humans do.
I liked this book because of the setting. I have always wanted to go to Africa and this story takes place in the African rainforest. I really like animals alot and would like to see them in real life. This book helped me to imagine all the animals that live in the rainforest even though the book was mostly about gorillas.
In this chapter book the illustrator draws pictures in black and white. I like color illustrations better, but the black and white pictures still help you understand the story.
I recommend this book to kids 8 years old and older because it's a chapter book. This book might interest you if you're interested in gorillas or how gorillas use sign languge.
