From the Publisher:
With the new teacher in charge, everyday lessons are a little bit wilder! It's a sad moment when the kids learn that he must return to the zoo, but then they hit upon a hilariously perfect solution.
The new teacher at school is sort of strange: he doesn't talk, he just grunts and he devours 16 bananas for lunch. Luckily, the students love their new instructor, who teaches them how to swing from trees and count on their toes. But then the school principal arrives with some shocking news....the new teacher is not a man, he's a gorilla! Illustrated with pastel pencil drawings.
Author Bio
Lillian Hoban
Best known for her picture books about Frances the badger and her easy-reader books about Arthur the chimp, Lillian Hoban led an interesting life before she settled down to write and illustrate children's books. A graduate of the Philadelphia Museum School of Art, Hoban studied dance with Martha Graham and worked as a professional dancer. Many of the books she created, including the Frances series, were written with her then-husband, Russell Hoban.

James Howe's career as a writer began in grade school when he wrote and edited a newsletter, "The Gory Gazette," for his classmates and friends. Although he loved writing, Howe's original career goal was to be an actor. After graduating from Boston University, he moved to New York City with his wife, Deborah, to pursue acting jobs. The couple began writing the book BUNNICULA in 1977, not realizing that Howe was beginning a new career as a children's writer. Since Deborah Howe's death in 1978, James Howe has written several sequels to their original work, as well as picture books, novels, and nonfiction.
