Bananas and Green Beans


Thanks, as always, to the amazing Green Bean books!

It was a great crowd of eager ape-lovers. We even tested out a new craft I invented where kids get to create their own banana-themed food, just like the book.

My contribution was a little something I call “banana cake”… and “banana spaghetti and meatballs.”


Sneak Peek!

Hey a wonderful time at Capitol Hill Elementary, in Portland, OR, today. I read to all three first grades and gave them each a sneak peek at Gorillas Go Bananas.

Contact me if you’d like a school visit! I am currently booking for the fall.


Gorillas Go Bananas First Review

Kirkus wrote a fantastic review of Gorillas Go Bananas (Available August, 2018).

                            GORILLAS GO BANANAS by Patrick WensinkWensink and Wragg’s follow-up to Go Go Gorillas (2017) riffs neatly on the theme of the picky eater with a rhymed fable that’s a foodie fantasy. Bright dynamic illustrations, mostly full-bleed, crafted with acrylic and digital color swing through the jungle and the kitchen.

Little monkeys will enjoy the rhyme and maybe pick up some new food vocabulary…and so might their caregivers.
