About the Author:

ANTHONY BROWNE is the acclaimed author and illustrator of such prize-winning bestsellers as Gorilla, Willy the Wimp and Zoo. Voices in the Park won the 1998 Kurt Maschler Award and was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal. Anthony was also the winner of the 2000 Hans Christian Andersen Award for Illustration, and in 2009 became the new Children's Laureate.

Review:

"A moving memoir, it reveals, among other things, the connection between his father (who died suddenly in Browne's teens) and King Kong. It is a fascinating exploration of how to make picture books and why they matter." -- Nicolette Jones The Sunday Times "Children's Book of the Year 2011: Former Children's Laureate Anthony Browne's books always pass the crutial 'read-it-again' test because his surreal, instantly recognisable illustrations reward repeated scrutiny. In 'Playing the Shape Game', which comes with masses of those fascinating illustrations - and texts based on conversations with his son Jo - he shows in gratifying detail how his childhood enjoyment of "the shape game" (art) became the career he loves." -- Sara O'Reily Time Out
