Killer Gorilla Summary

Killer Gorilla by Jeanne Willis

A little mouse loses her baby, but just as she starts looking for it, out of the rainforest looms a huge gorilla, so she starts running for her life. And so begins a chase that takes her all over the world: to China, Australia, North America, and even the Arctic! But when the gorilla finally catches up with her at the North Pole, it turns out that all he has been trying to do is return her baby to her!

Killer Gorilla Reviews

"'Underlined by wonderfully fearsome illustrations, the repetitive, rhythmic story begs to be read aloud. Tension mounts, only to be relieved by a logical twist in the tale and a happy ending. Brave two-year-olds through to more blase older siblings will respond to this version of King Kong meets the Gruffalo.'" -- Sonia Benster * The Bookseller *
"'It's always heartening to find an author who isn't afraid to scare the littlies.'" -- Nicola Smyth * Independent on Sunday *
"'A mouse is looking ofr her lost baby in the rainforest when a huge gorilla comes after her. Convinced he is going to eat her, she runs for her life . . . across several continents. But when he finally catches her, he has in fact something to give her. Did she misjudge his intentions?'" * The Bookseller *
"Willis's pacy text and Ross's atmospheric illustrations do a brilliant job of building tension until mouse and the reader are almost too afraid to look, before neatly taking a swipe at our preconceptions of the 'Killer' Gorilla as he shows himself to be gentle and caring." -- Jim Carrington * Write Away *
"Action-packed illustrations" * Chippenham News *
