Marry Larry an elephant? "Oh, no!" cried Princess Gorilla. She had a handsome gorilla in mind. But the king was determined to find for her the strongest and bravest animal of all. Whoever would drink a whole barrelful of vinegar could marry his beautiful daughter. Other suitors arrived–Hog, Hippopotamus, Leopard... Would any be powerful enough to win the hand of the lovely maiden? Or would the prin- cess be able to marry the gorilla of her dreams?

Verna Aardema's rollicking text is perfectly captured in Victoria Chess's buoyant artwork, as lush as a tropical paradise.
