Product Description

Review

"Wonderful" (Sunday Telegraph)

"Browne creates an understanding for the creature's emotions. Without spectacular cinematic effects, the themes of the story are much more apparent" (TES)

"A stunningly illustrated picture book that is just right for secondary school ages . . . With wit and verve in the artwork this is a winner" (The School Librarian)

Book Description

A stunning, dramatic version of the classic film, King Kong.

By S Riaz HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 1 July 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If any author was meant to produce a child friendly version of “King Kong,” it is certainly Anthony Browne – for whom illustrations of gorilla’s and other apes are his trademark. This is a picture book for older children, which will be sure to engage the most reluctant reader and will appeal to children of approx 7+, although it is also ideal to read aloud.

The story is, obviously, well known. King Kong is captured on a remote island and taken to New York, where he escapes and climbs the Empire State Building. Miss Ann Darrow, the beautiful young lady that Kong captures, bears more than a passing resemblance to Marilyn Monroe, and the book perfectly captures the time period. Glorious illustrations, an exciting storyline and fun to read. I bought this for my nine year old son, who is a big fan of the film of King Kong, and he was riveted. This makes a lovely gift and a good addition to any child’s bookshelf, which will appeal to a wide age range.

This was the book that got my seven year old boy reading - I mean really reading, can't put the book down, torch under the bedcovers, read it from cover to cover again and again reading. It helped that he had seen the film, but that in itself would not have been enough.

What makes this so special? Anyone who knows Anthony Browne will expect the fabulous quality of the illustrations. While the book follows the film closely, the images are unmistably Browne - perhaps not that unexpected that the creator of Gorilla and Willy should tackle the greatest ape of all.

And the text does not compromise the story or patronise younger readers. This is no simple picture book, but a well told, exciting adventure story, as gripping as the original.

All in a all an excellent offering, highly recommended.

My son saw this book in the local library when he went there with his junior school. He raved so much about it we had to buy it for him. It's now one of his favourites.
