    "Warm and touching story."

    Book Links, ALA

    "Little Gorilla’s velvety-soft jungle world seems as comfortably secure as the story’s evocation of love and friendship. Each page radiates a quiet drama as one after another, the jungle inhabitants indulgently express their affection for the irresistible baby. . . . Preschoolers will take pleasure in joining the conversely shrinking animal menagerie in wishing the not-so-little Little Gorilla a happy birthday."

    Booklist, ALA

    "Short and sweet, a song of love which . . . is beguiling. Everybody loved Little Gorilla from the day he was born until one day ‘something happened . . . Little Gorilla began to grow and Grow and Grow . . .’ And he was big, and everybody came and sang and danced and wished him a happy birthday and still loved him. So the message to the audience is clear: love goes on. The drawings are simple, large-scale [and] they fit the text very comfortably."
