What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

From the author-illustrator team behind Go Go Gorillas comes this lively, rhyming read-aloud starring a baby gorilla who refuses to eat his dinner. Perfect for picky eaters everywhere! It’s suppertime in the jungle, but Baby Gorilla refuses to eat anything Mama and Papa make for him—not banana chips with green guacamole or a piping-hot plate of plantain ravioli. He says no to a dish of bananas flambé and turns up his nose at banana soufflé! Step into the kitchen and laugh at dish after zany dish in this picture book adventure that is sure to make story times—and meal times—fun!
