Lulu takes great care of Patty Cake and there is a picture of her holding the baby to her (...)and looking straight into the camera that will haunt you for the rest of your life. The baby learns to crawl and climb the bars, but P.C.'s dad accidentally breaks her arm when she's about 5 months old. She goes into the hospital for 3 months. More seething shots of P.C.'s little grimace as her arm is being put into a cast. But is then welcomed back into her gorilla family in a short, touching scene.
At the end: a great shot through the bars at her first birthday not into the cage, but out of it at a throng of bell-bottomed kids with baloons loooking in at the gorilla family with unabashed awe. I love this book so frickin' much!!
