Synopsis

King Kong by Merian C. Cooper, ANTHONY BROWNE

King Kong is a giant gorilla, a huge and terrifying survivor from another age on an island trapped in a time warp. But the awesome creature is no match for the cunning of an ambitious promoter who sees Kong as a megastar showstopper and sets out to capture him. After endless thrills Kong is caught, but this is just the prelude to one of the most thrilling and famous of all cinema climaxes as Kong defies the world from the top of the Empire State Building, a majestic, tragic figure. Above all, KING KONG is a marvellous, timeless STORY, a worldwide favourite. Anthony Browne adds another dimension to this great classic and has produced a book which is a classic in its own right.
