Author Bio
Anthony Browne
Browne has a degree in graphic design from Leeds College of Arts. He has worked as a medical artist for the Royal Infirmary and as a greeting card illustrator. He is well known for his picture-book illustrations, many of which feature gorillas as main characters or manage to work in a gorilla as an illustrative detail. In 1982, Anthony Browne was awarded the Kate Greenaway Medal for his book GORILLA.

Praise

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"The parental portrait is appealing, but many youngsters will be waiting through the catalogue for a plot that never comes; the revision of one page in the American edition results in a gratuitous and out-of-place negative (and a stereotypical one to boot) that's a disservice to the heroic vision. This nonetheless has a solid, unsentimental approach to its affectionate overview that will resonate with kids when more flowery paternal offerings fall by the wayside." - Deborah Stevenson May 2001
