Gary’s Banana Drama
Simon & Schuster Children’s Books
Gary the huge gorilla is a banana-phile so you might imagine that his discovery one day that there are ‘NO MORE BANANAS’ would send him into a crisis. Not so! Gary isn’t one to panic; instead he dons his smart new titfa’, trims his toenails and sallies forth to carry out his plan: to search for his favourite food.
Pretty soon, it seems as though his plan is going to prove fruitful: there are bananas at almost every step.
The trouble is not one of the banana-looking items is the real thing. Some leap and lick his face, others burst into song
and then have the audacity to peck him; others come hurtling at him courtesy of one Billy.
He sees bananas wherever he looks; it’s enough to drive the creature absolutely err, bananas, especially when it starts to rain.
Then however, Gary’s luck changes. He bashes his bonce on a huge obstacle
and then despite not at first wanting anything to do with the object he’s bumped into, suddenly changes his mind and launches himself off towards the most wonderful place he could never have imagined …
Is it possible though to have too much of a good thing? …
Totally crazy – bananas you might say – but with some wonderful slap-stick moments Gary and his banana-filled drama will have your audience chortling with delight.
