The Lovereading4Kids comment
One of our Books of the Year 2014 A stunning picture book with a story to each spread to inspire a child's own imagination into what happens next and all linked to 10 classic stories. Join Willy the gorilla as he becomes a character in each of these classic stories including to a mysterious desert island with a footprint in the sand; down a deep, dark rabbit hole full of curious objects; or perhaps on board a pirate ship, face to face with Captain Hook. Each adventure leaves a question for you the reader to continue your own adventure and perhaps guess into which classic story Willy's adventure has taken him? Willy's Stories is created by multiple-award-winning Anthony Browne and is a magical celebration of stories and the imagination.
Published in 2014 to coincide with the publication of the 30th anniversary edition of Willy the Wimp, Willy's Stories shows Anthony Browne at the height of his powers as both an illustrator and author.
Willy's Stories by Anthony Browne
Where will Willy's imagination take him next? Once a week, Willy walks through an ordinary-looking set of doors and straight into an adventure. Where will those doors take him today: to a mysterious desert island with footprints in the sand; down a deep, dark rabbit hole full of curious objects; or perhaps on board a pirate ship, face to face with Captain Hook? Wherever he ends up, Willy's journeys begin when he walks through those inviting doors.
It features beloved classics of children's literature like Alice in Wonderland, Robinson Crusoe, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and The Wind in the Willows.
& urchins A visual and literary treat The Oldie A magical celebration of stories and imagination ... a joyful reading experience and Browne's surreal style has never seemed so apt or so warm and inviting Books for Keeps
