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.
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.
