Meet Girl and Gorilla—a brand-new picture book duo from Rick Walton and Joe Berger!
Girl and Gorilla are best friends. Girl and Gorilla want to play at the park. But how will they get there? They can . . . Hopscotch! Or jump rope! Maybe they can just close their eyes and wish they were there! But when they open their eyes . . . they are not at the park. Will Girl and Gorilla ever get to play at the park?
Books set in an urban setting are always intriguing to me. Growing up in suburbia and rural areas I have no real knowledge about what it would be like to grow up in a city other than what I’ve read in books and seen on cartoons and movies on TV, thus I’m always intrigued to experience such stories and now to share them with my own children. Girl & Gorilla Out and About is a fun story about two friends on their way to play at the park, but it seems to be taking so long to walk there and in an attempt to pass the time they come up with all sorts of traveling games. But the fun part is that do not seem to realize they are doing so and they entertain themselves on the way there and while they’re there and then it seems to start again on their way back home.
