    ITEM#: 3042268

    Peggy Rathmann is the author of a number of books for children, including the Caldecott Medal winningOfficer Buckle & Gloria and the highly acclaimed Good Night, Gorilla. Ms. Rathmann lives and works in San Francisco with her husband, John Wick.


    "Good night, Gorilla," says the zookeeper. But mischievous Gorilla isn't quite ready to go to sleep. He'd rather follow the zookeeper on his rounds and let all of the other animals out of their cages. Little night owls can sneak along with Gorilla and see who gets the last laugh in this riotous goodnight romp. Practically wordless yet full of expressive art and hilarious, adorable detail, this book from Caldecott Medal winning author Peggy Rathmann is sure to become a beloved part of children's own bedtime rituals.

      I bought this book to give to a friend who just had a little boy. It's a cute bedtime story. I also included a gorilla puppet to use when telling the story. It was a big hit.
