Willy the Wimp

Publisher: Walker Books

Review

Willy wouldn't hurt a fly. In fact, he even goes so far as to apologise when someone else bumps into him!

The local bullies call him Willy the Wimp, which he does not like at all. But things start looking up when Willy finds a body building advert in his comic. With the arrival of the much-awaited package, Willy’s world looks set to change… if only for a while!

A hilarious adventure through the ups and downs of body building, body image and sheer determination, expertly illustrated by the Children’s Laureate, Anthony Browne.

A treat for children and parents alike, this book will have you laughing from the bottom of your boots - whilst Willy quakes in his.
