About this deal

Anthony was also the first British winner of the Hans Christian Andersen Award, one of the highest international honours for illustration. Anthony Browne, a Hans Christian Andersen Medalist, is the author-illustrator of many acclaimed books for children, including Silly Billy and Little Beauty.

Es una historia que retrata la ambición humana, que destruye por obtener beneficios personales sin importarle nada más, en este caso la destrucción a la naturaleza y fauna en la isla, que como sabemos termina con la muerte de King Kong en Nueva York, luego de que el director decidiera llevar a este espécimen para "que el mundo entero pagara por verlo y hacerlos millonarios".When the gorilla leaves Ann to investigate the noise, a pterosaur swoops from the sky and clutches Ann in its talons. I bought this for my nine year old son, who is a big fan of the film of King Kong, and he was riveted. Although Denham, Englehorn, Jack and Ann are hiding behind foliage, the native chief spots them and approaches the troop. But to see their most pure emotions we must first get through their darkness, their anxieties and their dramas.

As its a picture book you would think that it would appeal to childern but because it was so long, childern could get bored. Denham's reply outlines the theme of both the movie he is making and the one in which he is a character: "The Beast was a tough guy too. This is the first time 'Kong' had ever appeared as a book and a book Anthony Browne was destined to illustate. All goes well until photographers, using the blinding flashbulbs of the era, begin snapping shots of Ann and Jack, who is now her fiancé. The enthralling story of King Kong involves battles with dinosaurs, daring rescues and incredible escapes - endless thrills lead up to one of the most famous climaxes of all time!Anthony Browne has a distinct and sophisticated style; his representations of the world provoke your imagination and make you reevaluate the aesthetic of life. Under the impression that the flashbulbs are attacking Ann, Kong breaks free of his bonds and escapes from the theater. Weakened and unable to hold on to the building, he gazes sadly at Ann one last time, before he loses his grip, and plummets to his death in the street below. His enthralling story involves battles with dinosaurs, daring rescues and incredible escapes - endless thrills lead up to one of the most famous climaxes of all time!

The story follows the movie completely, showing the trip to Skull Island, the emergence and capture of the great Kong and then the tragedy on top of the Empire State Building. Kong chases them, breaks through the large door of the wall and rampages through the village, killing many of the natives.In 2009, Anthony was appointed Children's Laureate, in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the world of picture books.
