Customer reviews

Reviews

'Anthony Browne is just so clever! I loved this book when I shared it with my own children and on re-reading, it has not lost an iota of its appeal. Adults will love the subtle humour in the pictures and text and children will come to appreciate the book more and more on each re-reading. The hilarious story subtly conveys an important message about looking beyond appearances and standing up to bullies.' Parents in Touch

'Still looking good on the 30th anniversary of its publication, Willy The Wimp provides both an entertaining read and a lesson in life for younger children.' The Book Bag
