My Brother

Review

Two books inspired by his own parents were followed by this one, in which his relationship with his brother is the springboard for a wider look at male siblings.

Illustrated in typical Browne style, with clearly recognisable, tender but humorous pictures, which make reference to many other sources, from within his own work (gorillas!) and beyond.

The brother in this book is the ultimate in cool: clever, talented, kind and fun. Presented as though it is a book which a child has made about his brother, it presents a positive relationship between siblings, and also cleverly confirms the importance of the child narrator/artist.
