King Kong Reviews

Wonderful * Sunday Telegraph *
Browne creates an understanding for the creature's emotions. Without spectacular cinematic effects, the themes of the story are much more apparent * TES *
A stunningly illustrated picture book that is just right for secondary school ages . . . With wit and verve in the artwork this is a winner * The School Librarian *
