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. Secondly there’s Sanyu, one of a troop of silverbacks in Uganda and everything the wildlife books describe – except that he loves to dance. He shares his story with a girl called Akello, whose life is touched by sadness, poverty and danger, but also courage and beauty. The spellbinding Mr Eden is a storyteller, but a character too. What does he know of gorilla dreams? Book reviews online: PublishedBestsellers website.
