158 pages. 5.5" by 8.25". 

The fourth volume in the author's series of six children's novels illustrated by her son Peter Boston. 

An outstanding, often beautiful, story, bringing together three of the most dissimilar elements imaginable. First, a gorilla, its birth and capture in the African jungle and its thirteen years at the Zoo. Then a Chinese orphan boy living in London, the enormous creature's visitor and friend. Finally, kind old Mrs. Oldknow in her ancient country mansion where all, at the last, in a vital moment, are met.

AS IS! Please see photos. More photos available upon request.
