Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Did you know that gorillas cannot swim? They hate the water so much that they use stepping stones or logs to cross even a shallow stream in order to keep their feet dry. Did you know that gorillas are so similar to humans that a baby gorilla with a brain abscess was successfully operated on by doctors at the Toronto Hospital for Sick Children? This book is a treasure trove of facts about the features, lifestyle, nature, habits, habitat, and folklore of this fascinating ape. The author also deals with the unpleasant topics of poaching and extinction and dispels some of the myths surrounding this misunderstood primate. Part of the "Untamed World" series.
