Gary is a little gorilla. He thinks that food can be used for so many things other than eating. Gary must be told many times during the meal: No Gary, no!

In this first Gary book, children can take on the role of a parent and feel more in control than reckless Gary... The family can think back on Gary’s crazy behavior and compare it to the clever child who is SO much better at their table manners!

food – eating – table manners

Korean, Dutch

"Situations related to eating are often very emotional in the everyday lives of families with children. That's why many children's books about eating are also well suited for practicing emotional skills. [...] The defiant gorilla Rane might not be the best food teacher in the opinion of an adult, but a child is guaranteed to have fun with it... Hannamari Ruohonen's long-limbed, expressive and agile Rane is a cool new picture book character." - Päivi Heikkilä-Halttunen, Children's book shelf

For Etana Editions, Hannamari Ruohonen has created a hilarious series of cardboard books for the youngest readers, which has quickly become one of the favorites in libraries. Gary is an unruly and resourceful baby gorilla who learns new skills every day. Sometimes a bit too resourceful though, his parents think, as Gary goes crazy and their patience is put to the test. The books cleverly support the child's skills and self-esteem: while reading about Gary's exploits, the children encourage him to do the right thing and realize that they themselves know the skill so much better.
