Wild Baby

Written and Illustrated by Cori Doerrfeld

This book makes me think of No! David by David Shannon. This story is written with a baby orangutan as the one who gets in trouble instead of a human baby. The word wild is used on every page and every phrase. This is how the author tells the story of how the mama orangutan finds beauty and love for her baby even through all the trouble and stress her baby causes. The art takes us on a beautiful journey through the jungle as well. Cute ending!
