"The Gorilla and the Fairy" is a beautifully illustrated book with an allegorical story about domestic violence. For those who are in a domestic violence situation this is probably a very good book. It details the most common techniques that an abuser uses to separate the victim from their support system and the common fears and thoughts of the victim. With a positive ending it is an encouraging book for those in that situation that shows them that they are not the only ones in that position and there is a choice. It may not be easy, but it is there.
The other group that would probably benefit from this book would be those that have recently come out of a domestic violence situation and are still in the healing process. Healing can take a long time and the book provides encouragement to help them heal.
This is a great book to use as a starting place for a serious discussion of domestic violence with children, teenagers just starting to experiment with relationships and those who are in, just out of, or know someone in an abusive relationship.
I did find something disturbing about the book but had a really hard time putting my finger on what it was. So, I asked a couple of people that had been in those situations to read it and give me their thoughts. I also asked a couple that had been in such a situation and now were happily married. The ones that were out of such a relationship but now happily married also found something disturbing about the book but could not figure out what it was. Finally we sat down and figured out what bothered us about the book. There is absolutely no positive male image in the book at any point. The picture of the rescuing angels are all female, no indication of a male fairy also out in the light and helpful and supportive. I can accept that people in that situation may have lost their faith in members of the opposite sex and need to trust only people of the same sex while they heal. That makes this book an excellent read for them. However, for those that have not been in those situations or have come out and are now healed it is more of a good jumping off point for a serious and animated discussion of the problem.
A very small book that takes a maximum of 30 minutes to read, for those that are in a violence situation and starting to wonder about the relationship, it could be a wonderful read and is highly encouraged. For anyone else, it is better as a discussion starting point.

Carol Young is an outstanding case of courage and strength, whom I am proud to call a friend. A small and soft-spoken woman, one would hardly believe to look at her that this type of violence is part of her history, and that she actually possesed the wherewithal to be able to take control and leave. She is a remarkable person, and she has written an equally remarkable book of her experience, in the hopes of being able to share her strong will with other women, and make them aware of their own ability to take control of a seemingly uncontrollable situation.
But as incredible as Carol is, she will be the first to tell you that she is no special case and that everyone contains within themselves the same type of strength and courage. The Gorilla and the Fairy is not a direct recount of what happened to Carol, but more of a tale of finding that incredible resevoir within oneself, no matter how small and frail they appear to be to others and to themselves. The book is intended to convey a lesson to victims of any type of abuse that each one of them can change their situation, no matter how bleak it may appear to be.

This is beautifully written and lovingly illustrated book for anyone dealing with a violent situation or their own, or for someone they know to be in a situation like that, or simply as a tale of what can happen to all the beautiful fairy-girls for whom some lessons in life may be more difficult to learn than others.

This book should be required reading or at least strongly recommended for anyone that has been or knows someone who has been verbally or physically abused. This author conveyed the subtile manipulations that bring one to the point of being helpless. (something one does not understand unless they have been there) To and threw the recover process in a non condemming and empathetic and "can't put the book down" way. To becoming a whole and usefull and strong person again. As she puts it "she is limited by no one." a victim no longer. Does she have other books? If so how would I get one. I am ordering 10 today to give to friends and the people I work with in the mental health fields. This is also good to read to children so they can see the signs in their own relationships and not fall victim. It is written in an entertaining and non threatening way. Good also for children of abusive parents, who often make the child or spouse to blame for their own problems. ie. If you hadn't spilled the milk I wouldn't have had to hit you. You made me do it.

The Gorilla and the Fairy was a healing book for me; I was in an abusive marriage. The author, (and illustrator) Carol Young captures many feelings and brought out emotions that I had pushed down for quite some time. I believe we should work through abuse in order to understand it, only then we can see how emotional and physical abuse drains your soul and prevents you from having a full happy life. The Gorilla and the Fairy is a book goes through the cycle of abuse and in the end has a message of hope and healing.
The illustrations are very unique, beautiful, and meaningful and enhance the story with turn of a page.
While reading this book I remembered what happened to me and how my angels (my family) helped bring me back into the light so I could see a better way. Perhaps by remembering we may be able to see abuse in other women, men or children and show them the light, give them support and hope for a gentle, safe, life. I recommend this book. - Angela Borgen

Dealing with the subject of abuse in a relationship,by it's nature,is a dark and dreaded area to tread. Carol Young has created a gently told story with illustrations that makes this subject approachable. The story is told in a way that makes you believe the author has tapped on self-experience and survived. In her recovery process she has passed on the gift of this story to enlighten others who may find themselves in a similar situation. Ms. Young accomplishes her task in a non-threatening, pallpable manner.
The story begins with light and ends with the hope of escape and recovery from a bad relationship. A list of possible sources of help for someone in need of information is included at the end of the story.
This book is a tool of discovery and recovery in an abusive relationship. If you have even suspected for a moment that you may be in a consuming, controlling or abusive relationship; this book would be an encouraging, helpful read.
