Product Description

Amazon Review

When Willy, literally, bumps into Hugh they both apologise profusely and soon become fast friends. When Willy is bothered by Buster the bully, Hugh is on hand to defuse the situation; and when Hugh is frightened by a "terrifying creature", Willy is able to return the favour.

Anthony Browne's colourful illustrations tell their own story--the picture of the friends gazing at the humans in the cages at the zoo, for instance, speaks volumes. This apparently simple story of friendship works on many levels as Anthony Browne's humour and sympathy for the apparent underdog shines through in both text and illustrations. (Ages 3 and over)

A Big Book edition of this story is also available. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

"Anthony Browne is one of the most talented artists working in children's books today and it's always exciting to see a new book by him. It is even more exciting when the book in question is about the marvellous character Willy" (Parents Magazine)

"No one who knows Anthony Browne's work will be surprised to learn that the illustrations are quite wonderful" (Daily Telegraph)

"Anthony Browne's stunning and masterful drawings, combined with a bizarre sense of humour, make Willy's exploits increasingly compulsive" (Daily Mail)

"Hurrah! we all say. Willy is back to delight us" (Books for Keeps)

"Browne is one of those acclaimed picture book authors who never disappoints" (Sunday Tribune)

This book is excellent for young children and children just starting school. It reveals how it feels to be bullied and why people bully. An insightful view into the child`s world showing that it is not just size that counts - how can a giant be afraid of a spider?! and that friendship is based on more than just appearance.

Helen for [...]

This is such a lovely story. Willy is a lonely chimp, picked on by others when he literally bumps into Hugh Jape (great name!) in the park one day and his whole life is changed. He has a friend.

Friendship is always a good theme for children's books and this works on many levels. Willy is no longer lonely, and when Buster arrives on the scene Willy finds he has a friend who will stand up for him and look after him. They enjoy sharing time and experiences together and best of all Willy even gets to reciprocate and help Hugh when he finds a `terrifying creature'! As an adult reader you can spot a whole host of subtleties in the writing that you could talk about with your child if you so wished.

There are great touches of humour in the story and in the illustrations. The pictures are really well done, adding much to the text in the way only good illustrations can.

Verdict:This is a brilliant read and a fun book to share.
