A true story of the gorilla named Koko who was taught sign language and more than anything wanted a cat. His teacher is scared that Koko will harm any real cat, so she gives him a fake one for Christmas and Koko is devastated. After much sadness she decides to try and see how the a real cat and Koko would interact and finds that Koko is a loving animal owner. This is a wonderful touching story for kids of all ages!

This story talks a little bit about Koko the gorilla in general, but focuses on her desire for a kitten and her relationship with her first kitten, All Ball. Koko wants a kitten very badly, and immediately falls in love with All Ball, a manx who loves Koko back. When All Ball dies, Koko is very lonely and wants a new kitten, and is greatful when she finally gets Lipstick, another manx.

This is a NON-fiction book, unlike what previous reviewer said. It is a true story. Koko is alive and well as of this writing, and you can follow her to see what she is up to now by going to www.koko.org. So much more has happened with Koko since this book was first published in 1985. When you go to the website, you can choose to receive more information on The Gorilla Foundation. We wrote the foundation and received a calendar with more pictures and info about Koko. My students also enjoyed following this story with the Reading Rainbow video.

We used this book for my daughter's first fiction book report. She really enjoyed it as did I. She shared the book with the children in her class and they were surpised that it was a true story.
