· 153 words · about a minute

A very Happy Birthday to Anthony Browne, the master storyteller responsible for childhood classics such as Gorilla and Willy the Wimp!

Anthony has written and illustrated over 50 books and has won the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal, the Kurt Maschler Award and Hans Christian Andersen Award as well as serving as Children’s Laureate from 2009-2011.

Anthony is a passionate advocate of illustrated fiction:

“Picture books are for everybody at any age, not books to be left behind as we grow older”

You can currently pick up The Tunnel on the website for half-price until stocks last.

Inspired by a frightening tunnel which Anthony would play in with his brother when they were younger, The Tunnel is a tale of sibling rivalry and a fascinating mix of real-life and fantasy.

Perfect for enjoying as a short read or for primary educators to use as a class text, you can find The Tunnel here:
