Where will Willy's imagination take him next? A magical celebration of stories and the imagination from the multiple award-winning Anthony Browne. From one of the most celebrated author-illustrators working today, comes a fantastical celebration of stories and the imagination. Once a week, Willy walks through an ordinary-looking set of doors and straight into an adventure - an adventure inspired by a beloved classic of children's literature, from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz to The Wind in the Willows. Where will those doors take him today: to a mysterious desert island with footprints in the sand; down a deep, dark rabbit hole full of curious objects; or perhaps on board a pirate ship, face to face with Captain Hook? Wherever he ends up, Willy's journeys begin when he walks through those inviting doors...

MEDIA REVIEWS
Intriguing exploration of the imagination -- Fiona Noble * Bookseller Children's Guide *
Offers children a glimpse into a variety of classic stories. As ever, his illustrations require close scrutiny to reveal elements of curiosity and wonder. Librarians will love this celebration of favourite books * The Bookseller *
The illustrations within this book are just incredible . . . brilliantly written and this creates a story that can change each time you read it! * babybuzz Magazine *
A great new story from the wonderful Anthony Browne. * Parents in Touch *
Delight. * Lytham St Anne's Express *
Browne's latest book is genius - you are taken on visual and narrative adventures and introduced to many beloved children's classics. There is always so much to explore within its pages. This is an exciting book for the entire family. * The Book Nook, The Bookseller. *
Beautifully produced . . . Browne's full-page colour pictures are stunning, not only capturing the spirit of the original text but also adding their own idiosyncratic (and sometimes quite dark) perspective. -- Robert Dunbar * Irish Times *
Engaging . . . wonderfully detailed pictures that really draw you in. Perfect to share. * Primary Times *
A truly interactive picture book capable of delighting * The School Librarian *
A fantastic, righteous cri de couer for libraries, words and the power of imagination * Big Issue in Scotland *
Willy the chimp makes 10 journeys into various classics of children's literature: how many can you identify? * Irish Times *
Browne's artwork is, as ever, quite stunning, and his wit and distinctive humour lie in the visual detail . . . a beautiful book and a great springboard for introducing children to the classics. * Daily Mail *
The latest gem . . . it is, as ever with Browne, the pictures that are really spellbinding * The Herald (Glasgow) *
This takes the form of a sequence of ten journeys, each into a different classic children's book and each illustrated in typical Browne style, mingling the realistic and the surreal. Readers will enjoy identifying the books chosen by Willy and responding to the questions he poses on them. A must for all book-lovers! * Children's Books Ireland Recommended Read *
A `Mr Ben' book of adventure * angels & urchins *
A visual and literary treat * The Oldie *
A magical celebration of stories and imagination . . . a joyful reading experience and Browne's surreal style has never seemed so apt or so warm and inviting * Books for Keeps *
