"Casey Gorilla knew just what he'd do when he woke up one morning in our city zoo..."
Every night Casey Gorilla listened to his friends at the zoo but he had no idea what they looked like. Casey longed to find out and one day he set out to do just that.
Beginning readers will love this rhythmical rhyming story of Casey's Great Escape told from the point of view of one adventurous gorilla. Perfect for the Common Core DC Ice's whimsical illustrations draw readers into Casey's world at the Como Park Zoo-and the delight (and fright) Casey the Gorilla delivered when he made a real-life escape from his enclosure one day.
