Little Beauty

Who says a kitten and a gorilla can’t be friends? Former UK Children’s Laureate, Anthony Browne, wrote and illustrated Beauty, which shows an unlikely friendship between two peaceful animals that are more alike than different. It also provides a brief, poignant insight into the misconceptions about gorillas perpetuated by King Kong.

Gentle and beautiful, this story provides conversation on friendship, communication and inner and outer beauty. Compare this story with a traditional version of Beauty and the Beast.
