ONE GORILLA: A Counting Book by Atsuko Morozumi

ONE GORILLA: A Counting Book

Email this review


Ranging from a garden (two butterflies) and a cozy English home (three budgerigars) to a snowy mountain (five pandas) and a coral reef (eight fish), Morozumi includes her one sweetly complacent gorilla in each beautifully painted scene, while giving readers the amusing challenge of locating the other creatures--which vary wonderfully in their placement and poses. An especially appealing debut from this Japanese-British illustrator.
