View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Anthony Browne's mild-mannered chimp teams up with a group of gorilla soccer stars in his first new picture-book appearance in five years.  Willy has much to overcome.  Not only is he a midget next to his burly teammates, he is convinced that his skill at soccer is due to a pair of magic shoes--which he forgets on the day of the big game!   How the irrepressible Willy finds the confidence to lead the gorillas to victory will have everyone cheering.

Willy is a winner with surefire appeal for anyone who wonders if attaining a goal is possible."--(starred review) School Library Journal

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!
