Willy’s Stories is written and illustrated by British Children’s Laureate (2009-2011) Anthony Browne. Each day Willy walks through these doors and something incredible happens.
Each of the ten stories begin in such a way as to disguise a well-known classic story, inserting the reader into a new story and then having the reader continue the story.
At the end of the book, the ten classic tales are revealed.
This book promotes imagination and originality.
