Willy’s Pictures

Title: Willy’s Picture

Author: Anthony Browne

Reading level: 2.8

Schu’s rating: Four 🙂 out of four

Notes: It should be in any art teacher’s collection.

Willy’s Pictures was published in 2000 and I just discovered it on Friday night. Willy, the chimp, creates paintings that resemble those of famous artwork. Each human subject is replaced by a chimp. Inspired works include The Herring Net, Mona Lisa, Vase with Twelves Sunflowers, The Birth of Venus, and more.  I think adults  will realize the differences between the original artwork and Anthony Browne’s creations more than children.
