A heart-warming classic children's story from Jill Tomlinson about a Gorilla who's looking to the future. Pongo is a young gorilla who lives in the mountains of Africa.
He has long glossy black hair and a black shiny nose.
But Pongo can't wait to grow up, when he will have a silver back like his father's and a big chest that he can thump. Filled with gentle humour and comfort, Jill Tomlinson's animal stories have been enjoyed by children who want to snuggle down with a good read for decades.
This edition is stunningly illustrated by Paul Howard, making it an even more enjoyable story for young readers.
