The Shape Game
'I was a little boy and I didn't know what to expect. It was my mother's idea - that year for her birthday she wanted us all to go somewhere different. It turned out to be a day that changed my life forever.'A family reluctantly visits an art gallery but one by one each member is energized by a different picture in the gallery and transported into the imaginative and colourful world of art.
" Anthony Browne . . . sublime master of the visual pun." -- "Independent on Sunday"
" For sheer illustrative wit, Anthony Browne is unsurpassed." -- "Times"
" Browne's illustrations are among the most distinctive and surreal of any children's artist. A beautiful tribute to a very special dad in a dressing gown." -- "The Scotsman" on My Dad
" Delightfully simple but visually impish." -- "The Literary Review"
"From the Hardcover edition."
