Review quote

"Anthony Browne is one of the most talented artists working in children's books today and it's always exciting to see a new book by him. It is even more exciting when the book in question is about the marvellous character Willy" * Parents Magazine * "No one who knows Anthony Browne's work will be surprised to learn that the illustrations are quite wonderful" * Daily Telegraph * "Anthony Browne's stunning and masterful drawings, combined with a bizarre sense of humour, make Willy's exploits increasingly compulsive" * Daily Mail * "Hurrah! we all say. Willy is back to delight us" * Books for Keeps * "Browne is one of those acclaimed picture book authors who never disappoints" * Sunday Tribune *
