About the author:
Nick Corbett is from the Royal Town of Sutton Coldfield in England. 'Gorilla and Okapi' is his fourth book. It is inspired by Africa's Virunga National Park and an idea he had for a story when he was thirteen years old. As well as being an author and an urban designer, Nick set up the company Transforming Cities to help protect the natural and built environment. His interest in wildlife has brought him face-to-face with wild bears in the Rockies and with an enormous Komodo Dragon in Indonesia.

Gorilla and Okapi
"An adventure in one of the most wonderful places on earth"
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 the forest 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.
Nick Corbett is the author of several books for children and adults.
