King Kong

Written by Anthony Browne

Featured Books for 5+ readers

LoveReading View on King Kong

A picture book to share with those who might think they were beyond the picture book stage, Anthony Browne’s King Kong is a sumptuous book which gives an awesome visual version of the original King Kong film matched by a much abbreviated version of the original text. Based on the story of the giant gorilla and his dramatic adventures including the rescue of a beautiful lady in distress and battles with dinosaurs, it ends with the iconic final moment on the Empire State Building. A book to savour for the astonishing quality of the illustrations. (7+)

As well as drawing, he encouraged me to play a lot of sports, such as rugby and soccer and cricket. I was small for my age and I used to go to a fairly tough school – if I hadn’t been good ...
