Willy is kind and gentle, and bullied by the suburban gorilla gang who call him "Willy the Wimp". Desperate to do something about his situation, Willy answers a bodybuilding advert and grows big and strong, determined no-one will ever call him "wimp" again.
As with so many of Anthony Browne's books, this story works on several levels with sophisticated pictures combining with a simply told story. Within the story there is a serious message, but it is also a humorous tale and young children will delight in the way Willy succeeds in his dream. --Philippa ReeceReview:
