This book has 38 words. And most of them are either "good" or "night." Like good comic strips, it tells the story primarily through pictures of a gorilla who gets out of his cage at night and sets other animals free unbeknownst to the zookeeper.
While I liked this book as a kid, I'm highlighting it here today because this is one of my niece's favorite books. She's almost two, and she knows how to say most of the animals' names now ("gorilla" was a tough one, but she got it). I think her favorite page, however, is the blacked-out room where you see all the eyes. She shouts, "EYE!" whenever we get to that part.
This is also my last post for Picture Book Month, because I'm Colorado hitting the slopes and spending time with the family. Thanks for joining me in celebrating some of my favorite books of all time!
