With new life comes infinite possibility, and as a gorilla family delights in their young child, they dream of everything their baby will encounter and who he will become. A companion to Matthew Cordell's stunning Wish, this picturebook picks up with a new animal family celebrating their little one as they imagine what the future holds. Praise for Wish
