His owner, Ellie, cries with every victim Tuffy brings through the cat flap. Can she change his violent ways and turn him into the tame pet she'd prefer? Tough-talking Tuffy tells the story from his point of view in this witty and deliciously unsentimental drama. Kind, gentle chimp Willy is sick of being branded a wimp and being bullied by the gorillas.
Answering an advertisement about body building, Willy begins a strict fitness regime; he trains hard and eats a special diet. Soon he is a muscle-bound hulk. The new-look Willy saves a girl from the bullies, who are now terrified. But inside, Willy remains the same; it is just that others see him differently. Anthony Browne tells a thoughtful story about how misleading appearances can be with style and humour.
Everyone knows that the dish ran away with the spoon, but whatever happened to them next? High on love and romance, the pair sail away to seek their fortune in America. In New York they become rich and famous, but lose everything when their taste for the high life leads them into debt. Romantics everywhere will fall for the visual treat of this nursery-rhyme adventure. Magic has never been more elegantly shaped than in these effervescent short stories, which weave a speck of the unexpected into the everyday to make worlds that are both familiar and excitingly different.
Series: Horrid Henry
In every story the flight of imagination is delicately captured in Jan Pienkowski's accompanying silhouettes. The conservation message of this book, published in , is ahead of its time. But why is the Earth unattractive? Because humans have spoilt it. Built over and rubbish-strewn, it is a mess.
But the dinosaurs awaken and begin to tidy up. Humans can only return if they promise to share the Earth in future.
Brilliant illustrations convey an important message without preaching. General Jodhpur loves to train his soldiers, and has made them the best fighting force in the world. But one day he discovers the beauty of the countryside and realises that saving the flowers and trees and creatures who live in them is more important than fighting. An important message delivered in striking pictures. How resourceful Polly outwits the wolf who eagerly stalks her in the hope of eating her is a masterly blend of risk-taking and triumph.
In each story, the wolf has a well-thought out plan and Polly manages to circumvent it. Plenty of literary allusions — the wolf is familiar with the story of Little Red Riding Hood and knows all about how magic beans grow. Everyone said so. Even his mother.
Henry snatches, pushes, shoves and pinches. But these acts are nothing compared with how horrid Henry is to his brother, Perfect Peter. In the four stories in this volume, Henry does anything to get what he wants. With an unerring ability to capture the cruellest details of sibling rivalry, these stories are driven by an infectious humour that tempers the tension. Nasty and disgusting antiheroes of a Dahlesque kind are in vogue; their filthy habits and displeasing behaviour makes them both childlike and a delightful source of easy humour.
Mr Gum is just such a character: he hates children, animals, fun and every cartoon that has ever been made. But he loves money and will do anything to get his hands on some. London Borough of Bexley.
