Anthony Browne's Gorilla reappears this fall, nearly 20 years after its original publication. The surreal story captures Hannah on the eve of her birthday and follows her escapades with a toy gorilla gift that comes to life; art and film fans will enjoy seeing gorilla mugs in place of the faces on the Mona Lisa, Whistler's mother and Superman, among others. (Sept.)
