This is a lovely book. Perfect for children from around 6 to 9 - as the humour and situations better fit the slightly older child's humour and experience.

Willy decides to change the way he looks (from wimp to muscle-bound!)as a result of being bullied. He works out, eats a special diet and, over time, achieves his dream. He eventually saves a girl gorilla from the bullies (who run away at the mere sight of him). However, what the book emphasises beautifully is that, while he has changed the way he initially appears to others, he is still the same caring (and a bit silly!) gorilla inside.

A lovely book for encouraging children to look beyond appearances. It also offers a wonderful message that we CAN change, with determination and commitment.

A lovely, funny and uplifting book!

My two year old loves these books - easy to read to her, as there is not a lot of writing on each page, and beautiful illustrations. Keeps her attention very well!

This book is great for children and adults. The pictures are really lovely with lots of attention to detail. However, unrelated to this it would be even greater great if Amazon would PAY THEIR FAIR SHARE OF TAX in the UK so others won't have to suffer further cuts in services, schools, public transport, housing etc. Please Amazon, behave more responsibly and contribute to a fairer society.

Such a lovely book. I bought this when my daughter was getting bullied, it seemed to help her. The rhyming in this is lovely and one that is read over and over.
