Just in case you aren't won over by the picture above (soulless bastards that you may be), we invited Madéleine to talk a little about what readers can expect to find in the book:
"Well now, The Girl and the Gorilla centers around Aurelie, a young girl who is struggling with some personal issues that have kept her pretty upset. But her mood is quickly changed when she crosses paths with a large talking Gorilla! She follows him into a magnificent world where she meets historical figures and native residents of this new world who help her change her view on life as she faces the pure evil that lurks in the shadows.
Magilla Gorilla, eat your banana-filled heart out. The Girl and the Gorilla will be available later this year; if, like us, you can't wait for that, be sure to visit Madéleine's website every single day until the book's release. Whilst you're at it, be sure to a good hard look at the Blank Slate website, before its glorious renovation is complete.
