Willy the Champ

By Anthony Browne
Illustrated by Anthony Browne

Join Willy as he takes on the big bad bully!

Willy is different. He likes to read books and listen to music; he's no good at sports, although he tries; and wherever he goes he gets laughed at. But when he's threatened by the horrible Buster Nose he really comes into his own.

  • Anthony Browne is an award-winning author. He has won the Kate Greenaway Medal, the Kurt Maschler Award and the 2000 Hans Christen Andersen Award.
  • "Browne can't help including his trademark surreal touches ... but he also effectively conveys the sheer physical oppressiveness that bullies exert over their victims. Funny and thought-provoking at the same time." Book Trusted.
