Fed up with being bullied Willy the gorilla decides to take action and if that means getting fitter and tougher then that's what he does. Suddenly the bullies are running away and even better Willy saves a girl from the bullies, with hilarious results. This delightful new edition celebrates 30 years of this timeless and award-winning picture book by multiple-award-winner Anthony Browne.
