Willy's Pictures

by Anthony Browne

Published by U.S. edition: Candlewick Press, 2000
32 pages
ISBN: 0-7636-1323-1

Ages 6 - 12

Willy the Chimp loves to paint and look at pictures, and each of the paintings he displays here is a famous masterpiece with a twist: all the humans have turned into gorillas and chimpanzees! The fun doesn't stop there, as Anthony Browne has included plenty of visual gags and references in every painting, inviting children to study each of them closely. A fold-out page at the back of the book includes small reproductions of the actual paintings that are parodied here for easy comparison, and for further background. Finally, we get Willy's wry commentary on each of his parodies, which adds an additional level of humor.
