Primo primate artist Anthony Browne is at the top of his form with a simple — and simply fascinating — array of creatures for kids to count. What better attention-getter for small children than primates in all their variety? And who better to render them than Anthony Browne? In this elegant counting book, the author-illustrator outdoes himself with a vivid presentation of primates from gorillas to gibbons, macaques to mandrills, ring-tailed lemurs to spider monkeys. With his striking palette, exquisite attention to detail, and quirky flair for facial expressions, Anthony Browne slyly extends the basic number concept into a look at similarities and differences — portraying an extended family we can count ourselves part of.

A game of hide-and-seek in the forest might lead to unexpected discoveries. Could there be something hidden in the trees? When their dog goes missing, siblings Poppy and Cy decide to play hide-and-seek in the woods to distract themselves. Poppy counts to ten and sets out to look for Cy, but she can’t find him anywhere. Deeper into the woods she goes, looking for her brother, until she hears a rustling noise nearby. What could it be? Surreal forest scenes heighten the mood of the story, holding plenty of hidden images to discover. Award-winning picture book creator Anthony Browne captures one of those childhood moments when imaginations get a bit carried away, then reassures readers with a comforting ending.

Young Frida Kahlo's imaginary friend comes to life in a touching story by Anthony Browne enhanced by exquisite surreal illustrations. Following a bout with polio at the age of six, Frida Kahlo's life was marked by pain and loneliness. In real life she walked with a limp, but in her dreams she flew. One day her imagination took her on a journey to a girl in white who could dance without pain and hold her secrets, an indelible figure who would find her way into Frida's art in years to come. Inspired by Frida Kahlo's diary, Anthony Browne captures the essence of the artist's early flights of fancy and depicts both Frida and her imaginary friend in vivid illustrations evoking Kahlo's iconic style. A note at the end offers a brief biography of the artist who has intrigued art lovers the world over.

Illus. in full color. "Mr. Piggott and his sons are a male chauvinist lot who, outside of yelling for their dinner, don't exercise themselves much around the house. When Mrs. Piggott finally tires of the endless chores that sandwich her workday, she leaves the menfolk on their own, with a note saying, 'You are pigs.' With the cooking and housework untended, they soon turn genuinely porcine, a transformation Browne foreshadows with pig faces on the wallpaper, vases, fireplace, phone. As in most of Browne's art, there is more than a touch of irony and visual humor here. Fun to read aloud."--Bulletin, Center for Children's Books.

Young worriers will relate to — and be comforted by — this tale of a boy’s anxiety as he heads to his first big party. What if Joe doesn’t like the party he’s going to? What if he doesn’t like the food or the games or the people? As Joe and his mom walk down the darkening street, Joe’s imagination starts to run wild. And as they search for the right place, he wonders “what if . . .” at each house, peeking in to see some surprising sights. From the award-winning former British Children’s Laureate Anthony Browne comes a picture book whose slyly bewitching setup unfolds to a reassuring ending.

When a niggling worry begins to cloud Willy’s whole day, Anthony Browne shows readers that facing your fears head-on can clear the skies once more. One warm, sunny day, Willy the Chimp decides to go to the park. There’s not a cloud in the sky — well, except for just a little tiny one. It doesn’t bother Willy too much at first. But as the cloud follows him, it grows bigger and bigger and becomes harder and harder to ignore. Pretty soon the cloud is all Willy can think about, and he has no idea how to make it go away. Quietly powerful and remarkably perceptive, Anthony Browne’s thoughtful tale depicts worry and anxiety in a way readers of any age can understand. And as Willy discovers, sometimes a little bravery — and a willingness to face your problems — can make a world of difference.
