My daughter picked this book up at the library one day. She and I quickly fell in love with this book of poems about Gorilla. I decided to purchase the book so we could read it over and over. The poems really capture the essence of owning a cat.

Award-winning writer Nikki Grimes and illustrator Shane Evans combine talents in this kid-friendly book of poetry about young Celilia and her cat, Gorilla. Grimes doesn't go for cute or adult-pleasing clever, instead, her poetry rings of kids' truths. Kids can relate to Cecilia's experiences and emotions, ranging from simple yet insightful observations to personal feelings of separation, love, and mischief.

In "Little Miss Fussy," for example, we learn a little about Gorilla's diet; this cat is no Garfield:

Gorilla is fussy
about what she eats
She turns up her nose
at the usual treats.

Forget the canned fish,
and chicken, and liver,
GOrilla likes soul food,
so that's what I give her.

Cecilia and her cat have a rich relationship, and the cat serves as a vehicle for Cecilia's emotions, as well as a pet who can soothe them. THe short poem, "Comfort" shows this personification of Cecilia as well as the mutual support. It's a short, simple piece--the longest line has only 4 words--and Grimes' concluding metaphor children can take the concluding metaphor literally or not. Either way, it still works.

"Comfort"

My friend
packed my heart
and moved away.
Gotilla raised a paw
and pet me.
I think I cried a doxen times
that day.
Gorilla drank my tears
and let me.

There's one poem in which Grimes ineffectively switches voice between Gorilla and Cecilia. It's the only poem that seems confusing and unsatisfying--perhaps someone involved in the book's production didn't separate some stanzas. Aside from that one piece; however, 'Gorilla' strikes all the right notes, and the big, bold, graphics pf Shane Evans add to the many pleasures of this delicious, oversized treat.

This book really captures the essence of a cat and the relationship a child might have with their pet cat. My first grader loves cats and we love this book!
