"Look What I've Got" By Anthony Browne (published by Walker Books Ltd, London 1996 - Orininally published by Julia MacRae Books 1980) Part 4

 
 
There are plenty of visual jokes in the book - in contrast with minimal amount of dialogue. I love the one above with the "x", "z" and "y" fronts hanging from the washing line (along with the superman suit and the three-breasted bra!). A warm, funny story and a classic book.
 
There are quite a few articles and biographies on Anthony Browne available online - but I couldn't find an official website by the author. Here is an interview about his life and work: http://www.booktrust.org.uk/books/children/illustrators/interviews/69 and the Wikipedia entry is good for listing his large catalogue of picture books:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthony_Browne_(author)

"Look What I've Got" By Anthony Browne (published by Walker Books Ltd, London 1996 - Orininally published by Julia MacRae Books 1980) Part 2

 

The wonderful and mysterious surrealism of Anthony Browne knows no boundaries.  I scanned several details from this one illustration(above) to show just how many animals and birds the artist was able to hide within one picture!  A real treat for any child's imagination.
