Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0060276606, Hardcover)

‘If you happened to be walking down the street in New York City in the 1930s you might have seen a most amazing sight; a beautiful woman with a very well-dressed, four-hundred-pound gorilla sporting a red carnation in the lapel of his jacket. The lady’s name? Gertie Lintz. And the gorilla’s name was Buddy.

But how does a gorilla come all the way from Africa to the streets of New York wearing a suit and tie and a red flower in his lapel? Well, here’s the story.’

High-spirited, heartbreaking, and ultimately joyous, Buddy is a classic in the making, told with the joie de vivre one now comes to expect from the ever versatile William Joyce.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:08:12 -0400)

Gertrude Lintz, a New York socialite who believes that animals should not be caged, raises a gorilla named Buddy and reluctantly realizes that he is not suited for city life.
