Part of the fun of [cf2]Good Night, Gorilla[cf1] (Putnam) (besides watching animals escape behind a somnolent zookeeper's back, and saying ""Good night"" in seven different animal voices) is tracing the moonward progress of the balloon released from the gorilla's cage. In this board-book edition, the balloon is often hard to find or partially cropped out. Stick to the original picture book edition; it has the right format for its audience and is much better produced. Copyright 1998 Horn Book Guide Reviews

"Universally understandable subject matter and a narrative conveyed almost entirely through pictures mark this as an ideal title for beginners," said PW. Ages 2-6. (May) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
