About the Book:
Simplicity at its best is manifested in this picture book. The contrasting beauties of nature mingles with the imagination of author and illustrator and creates a story children won’t forget easily. The happy banana changes the life of a gorilla and shows him another way of life. Others badger the Gorilla because of his affections towards a banana and they are forced to leave that part of the jungle, in search for peace and quiet. They are united with another Gorilla, who has a smiling apple friend. The main message of the book is what has caused struggle and frustration for many: Change, and the acceptance that change is necessary and most likely, fruitful, in every aspect of the word!
