More About Anthony Browne
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!"

This is not a story only for children. It is an introduction to the painting details too. As the complete works for children Anthony Browne has developed, this book also contains the easy vocabulary to be understood by children and the baroque drawing of every element in each picture, so you can introduce even some famous paint masterpieces to the visual memory of every reader. In this case is Velazquez. Don't think the short number of pages is for a speedy reading, you can pass slowly every page looking the multiple details subjetively put on each square.
