Two bored gorillas begin a game of ‘I dare you…’ that quickly escalates into something very foolish indeed. It begins with a bug, then a bird. Soon the silly gorillas are suffering the discomfort of having to eat rocks, and a huge tree in order to out-dare the other. Finally, one gorilla makes a joke that sees the friends falling into fits of laughter. But there can be only one winner in a game of ‘I dare you…’.
Reece Wykes shows off some stunning illustrative talent in his debut picture book for the always-impressive Andersen Press list. Glorious jungle greens make up the backgrounds behind the two impressive characters. The gorillas are really expressive and the simplicity of the design creates some really stunning spreads. The cheeky twist at the end will have children squealing with delight.
