Julia Eccleshare On Anthony Browne

Browne made an immediate impact with his first book, Through the Magic Mirror in 1976, and cemented it three years later with the delightful conceit of Bear being able to draw his way out of trouble in Bear Hunt. But it was with his trademark gorillas that he won his first prizes and widespread recognition. In Gorilla (1983) a lonely girl with a passion for gorillas, whose father is too busy to take her out, goes on a moonlit adventure to the zoo with a gorilla dressed in her father's coat and hat. It won prizes on both sides of the Atlantic.
