Part of a series of books about the adventures of one 'Charlie Small'; a unique eight-year-old who finds himself in the middle of a much anticipated, if somewhat surreal adventure. Each book documents his experiences as he comes face to face with the unusual, unthinkable and wildly imaginative... this one being his unintentional discovery of a Gorilla City.
I love the style of this book - although it does suffer with a few superfluous pages of exceptional, but random illustration (mostly in the latter stages) - thankfully, this doesn't manage to overshadow the overriding content: the irresistible plot line, the extraordinarily imaginative flair of the author and a memorable introduction to the enchanting character that is Charlie Small.
Sure to be a hit with children - parents will also appreciate the fact that it suits most budgets.
