Willy the Dreamer

By Anthony Browne

A stunning Willy book with spectacular, surreal paintings – by one of the most acclaimed of all picture book artists.

Willy loves to dream. He dreams that he’s a film star, a sumo wrestler, a ballet dancer, a painter, an explorer, a famous writer, a scuba diver… Sometimes he dreams that he can’t run but he can fly. He dreams he’s a giant or he’s tiny, a beggar or a king, in a strange landscape or all at sea. He dreams of fierce monsters and super heroes, of the past and, sometimes, the future. Willy’s dreamland is a gallery of amazing and magical pictures, each one magnificently executed and packed with bananas and slyly surreal details that cannot fail to intrigue and delight. The pictures pay homage to famous paintings by the likes of Dali, Magritte and Henri Rousseau, as well as film and book characters and much more.
