About this book

Mr Eden is a teacher with the magic to make stories live. Here he offers his class two very different GORILLA DREAMS.
First there’s the crazy, knockabout humour of Gilbert’s story. He’s a gentle gorilla who wants to be cool – like his classmate Groover the Mover on his skateboard and motorbike. But Gilbert has a secret that could make a fool of him.

The spellbinding Mr Eden is a storyteller, but a character too. What does he know of gorilla dreams?
