AUD $12.99

A funny, heartwarming picture book about the love between a mother and a child, written by master storyteller Sean Taylor and illustrated by David Barrow.

Little Gorilla is going to the doctor for a shot. His mom says it's because she has to look after him. But that's the problem--his mom always looks after him so much. First, she makes him eat broccoli, then, whenever he sneezes, he has to put on an extra sweater. And now a shot! But it's not all bad--the doctor gives Little Gorilla a stick-thing that smells of strawberries for being brave. He loves it--but then he leaves it on the bus on the way home! Little Gorilla is distraught--but his mom takes him back to the doctor for another stick thing. His mom really does look after him so much.
