KIRKUS REVIEW

Yet another lowest-common-denominator demonstration of the value of individual differences. When the two unlikely friends picnic together, Gorilla discovers that he can't swim like Goose, and so starts worrying about being too heavy; whereas Goose becomes equally depressed when it turns out that his feet are too flat to climb a banana tree like Gorilla does. It takes wise Dr. Lion to point out what kids could have told them all along--and what, for their part, neither Delton nor Funai do anything to individualize.
