Illus. in full color. "This particular wimp is a chimp, making for riotous pictures as we see the preppy-looking Willy being hassled by a gang of apes and finding his salvation in a Charles Atlas-type ad featuring a muscle-bound gorilla. Willy sends away for the book and soon becomes monkey enough to take on the gang when they attack his heartthrob, Millie. Browne's skillfully executed artwork has a crisp, polished look. Delicious tongue-in-cheek humor."--Booklist.

About the Author:

Anthony Browne is rightly regarded as one of the world's leading picturebook creators.  He lives in England with his wife and two children.  He has won awards in many countries, including the Kate Greenaway Medal of England for GORILLA and ZOO,  and the Kurt Maschler Award of Germany for GORILLA.  His inspiration for GORILLA came from a combination of things -- a greeting card he'd designed of a huge macho gorilla holding a teddy bear, a very lonely boy he knew whose father lived in New Zealand, his own fascination with gorillas.  The behavior of a real family provided the idea for PIGGYBOOK (not his own, however!)  When the book was completed, he presented the family with a copy, without comment.  But they didn't see any relevance to themselves!  

From Publishers Weekly:

A chimp takes a body-building course in Browne's satirical look at the world of wimps and bullies. Ages 3-7.
