Kivu, an orphaned mountain gorilla, rules over Silverback Valley in the extraordinary African rainforest. Under his watchful protection the animals are kept safe.
When a severe storm brings the arrival of a fierce crocodile, it threatens the future of the forest’s animals and challenges Kivu’s ability to rule.
Kivu decides to leave in search of a new life. Luckily, he is not completely alone as the gentle Okapi follows him, for like Kivu she too is the last of her kind.
Their epic journey takes them across forests and fields to the top of an erupting volcano where they confront a troop of rebellious baboons, but to fulfill his destiny Kivu must return home and confront his old enemy.
Gorilla and Okapi is beautifully illustrated by the Emmy award winning artist, Winnie O’Brien.
