A silly gorilla tries to be other zoo animals and learns that he is happier just being himself.

Will Willy be another type of animal?No!Still a gorilla!In this fun, zany picture book, Willy the Gorilla imitates other animals at the zoo, including a lion, a walrus, a billy goat, an alligator, and a kangaroo. But pretending to be something he is not never works out. What if he just tried to be himself? In the end, Willy is still a gorilla -- and that's something everyone can appreciate! Still a Gorilla! is a funny, wacky, rhyming picture book that teaches the importance of being yourself.

Praise for I Know a Wee Piggy by Kim Norman and illustrated by Henry Cole:*"This is a blue ribbon-worthy read-aloud opportunity for celebrating rhyme, repetition, rural traditions, laughter -- and, of course, color. The star's earnestness is irresistible, and both text and pictures are rich and energetic." -- Booklist, starred reviewPraise for Puddle Pug by Kim Norman and illustrated by Keika Yamaguchi:"Through playful, alliterative sentences, as well as simple rhyme, Norman carries children... on a curious journey to define home -- and the 'perfect puddle.' A read-aloud that charmingly explores the depths of friendship, security, and community." -- BooklistPraise for Ten on the Sled by Kim Norman and illustrated by Liza Woodruff:"What with animal identification, counting, vocabulary building and print awareness all scaffolded on a can't-lose rhyme, this one's a keeper." -- Kirkus Reviews
