This gorgeous book is the illustrated journal of the Lewins' trip to Uganda to see the mountain gorilla. An introduction talks about this endangered species, where the animals can be found, and describes the process of "habituation." . . . Side drawings show their progress, providing humorous asides. . . . Interspersed with the text are lush, watercolor double-page spreads. Readers learn about the animals' habits, their family structure, and how trackers interact with them. . . . This is a visual feast.
