In this story, Davy and his father, Mr. Smith, went to Africa to catch animals for the circus. They wanted a gorilla. While his father was resting under a coconut tree, Davy found a coconut. He kicked it into the bushes. A gorilla named Julius kicked it back. Julius is a friendly gorilla. Davy and his father brought Julius back to America to join the circus. Julius was very happy to be in the circus.
I liked this book very much because it had a happy ending. The gorilla was happy to be in the circus and it was not mistreated. The illustrations were easy to understand. They kept me interested in the story. I couldn?t wait to read the next line.
I would recommend this book to young readers because it was interesting to read and it was written with a happy ending.
