As the zookeeper makes his final nocturnal rounds, bidding his animal charges good-night, he is followed by a mischievous young gorilla who unlocks the cage of every animal after the keeper passes. Before long, there's a long line of animals following the unwitting zookeeper all the way home to his bedroom! Wryly expressive illustrations help to tell the story in this perfect bedtime book for young children who will delight in the little gorilla's antics. (Ages 2-5)
