About this Book

Batty and his gang of rats need a Minder to protect them against their enemies in particular, Oily Sludge the wharf cat. And so they kidnap a gorilla from the zoo and dress him up as a person. London goes on full alert looking for the lost gorilla, but Alf is becoming harder and harder to find as he becomes more and more human everyday.

The story of Alf Gorilla, well-known hero of Alf Gorilla and Alf Gorilla Adrift, is told here in picture-book form. Ideal for young readers who will enjoy Alf's escapades and adventures in London, illustrated in bright, witty pictures packed with humour.

About the Author

Michael Grater, who wrote and illustrated the popular Alf Gorilla books for older children, now introduces the wayward gorilla (and his friends the Battersea gang) to younger readers.
