If Steve Antony’s tongue-in-cheek Betty series is to be believed, it’s almost uncanny how much a baby gorilla has in common with the average 2– to 4-year-old human child.
Let’s see: they’re infuriatingly contradictory, loud, temperamental and stubborn; and, of course, they (usually) love bananas. Lucky for them, they’re also pretty lovable when they’re not GOING bananas.
Both parents and children will be able to identify and empathise with Mr. Toucan — the voice-of-reason-slash-daddy-figure — and Betty, respectively, in this hilarious and familiar portrayal of toddler bedtime drama (hoo-boy, can I relate!).
