What does a gorilla artist think about?

This is a wonderful book. It is told from the viewpoint of Ivan, a silverback gorilla who is an artist. The language is beautiful. I read it to my 4th grade class and they LOVED it! The students wanted to learn more about poaching and how zoos work. I would HIGHLY recommend this book. Adults will love it also!

    I bought this because it was heavily recommended and highly promoted on the web and via email campaigns.  I tried to persevere through several chapters, and while the children I was reading it to were polite and patient...I found myself highly frustrated.  I don't think the age range is appropriate, but I also don't think there is a range of people out there who would actually enjoy this. #painful
