MEDIA REVIEWS
Sooner rather than later most children encounter a counting book. To work, the genre has to be about more than escalating numbers ... In One Gorilla ... Browne's gorillas, orang-utans, chimpanzees etc. are gorgeous, with fur that glows orange, blue-black, whiskery white. Their expressions celebrate animal dignity. Paradoxically, this is also what makes them funny. Finally, there is a self-portrait of the author himself gazing back at us, with the words: "All Primates. All one family. All my family ... and yours!" Browne's truthfulness and humanity make this an essential new classic. -- Amanda Craig * The Times *
the rich, evocative drawings invite the reader to look closely * The Bookseller *
deceptively simple, endearing and thought-provoking * CBI recommended reads of 2012 *
