This story is about a Gorilla who escaped from the zoo. When the zoo keeper locked the gorilla cage, the Gorilla got the keys and started unlocking all the animals' cages. Then all the animals followed the zoo keeper to his house. The zoo keeper's wife woke up and saw the animals. To find out the rest, read the story.

I liked the part when the Gorilla started unlocking all the other animal cages because it was funny. When the Gorilla was sneaking up on the zoo keeper, it reminded me of when I always sneak up on my brother. My favorite character was the Gorilla because he was funny. It was funny when the Gorilla was in the bed with the zoo keeper.

I would tell kindergartners and 1st graders to read this story because it's funny, and kindergartners and 1st graders like to laugh.
