Four different voices tell their own versions of the same walk in the park. The radically different perspectives give a fascinating depth to this simple story which explores many of the author's key themes, such as alienation, friendship and the bizarre amid the mundane. Anthony Browne's world-renowned artwork is full of expressive gorillas, vibrant colours and numerous nods to Magritte and other artists, while being uniquely Browne's own style.

“Colourfully presented!”

A cleverly designed book, portraying four different views of the same event. A wonderful way of introducing young children to the idea that we all interpret the same event differently.
