Children's LiteratureIn this nearly wordless book in Spanish, young children will have a good laugh as they watch the zookeeper making his rounds and wishing the animals all goodnight. The clever gorilla has swiped the zookeeper's keys and as he visits each cage, he opens it and lets the animal out. As the keeper heads for home, the animals all follow along and join him and his wife for a good night's sleep. Or so it seems until the zookeeper's wife realizes that something has gone wrong when she hears a chorus of goodnights. She takes the animals back to the zoo, but our crafty gorilla is not one to be outdone. In this board book, the illustrations convey all of the detail and humor—from the lion licking its lips over a bone to the mouse pulling a banana that shows up again and again until it is finally just a banana skin on the very last page. 2004 (orig. 1994), Putnam, Ages 3 to 6.
