Willy loves to dream. He dreams that he's a film star, a sumo wrestler, a ballet dancer, a painter, an explorer, a famous writer, a scuba diver. Sometimes he dreams that he can't run but he can fly. He dreams he's a giant or he's tiny, a beggar or a king, in a strange landscape or all at sea. He dreams of fierce monsters and super heroes, of the past and sometimes, the future.

Anthony Browne is one of the most popular and stylistically distinctive children's book artists with a number of outstanding titles to his credit. These include six books featuring Willy: Willy the Wimp, Willy the Champ, Willy and Hugh, Willy the Wizard, Willy the Dreamer and Willy's Pictures, as well as Gorilla (Winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal and the Kurt Maschler Award); Changes; The Tunnel; I Like Books; Things I Like; Look What I've Got!; Piggybook; Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (Winner of the Kurt Maschler Award); Hansel and Gretel; Zoo (Winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal) and King Kong (shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal). He was the winner of the illustration section of the 2000 Hans Christian Andersen Award.From Publishers Weekly:
In his fifth book about Willy the chimp, Browne gives a smart, playful nod to Magritte, Rousseau, Dali and other artists whose paintings were often more the stuff of dreams than of real life. Browne's whimsical borrowings and witty visual puns stretch this volume's appeal far beyond the typical picture-book audience. And though Willy's youngest fans may not get the full picture, they'll likely take a naif's pleasure in the dream-like quirks and incongruities packed into each watercolor. Dozing in an armchair, the chimp envisions himself a movie star in guises that include Mary Poppins, Dracula and Charlie Chaplin; a singer who's a ringer for Elvis; a ballet dancer in a lacy tutu and toe shoes fashioned from bananas; a famous writer surrounded by simian versions of Sir John Tenniel's Cheshire Cat, Mad Hatter and other residents of Wonderland. And from the moment they view Browne's fetching cover illustration, kids will keep their eyes peeled for the inventively placed bananas in Willy's dream scenes. A parody of the famous picture inscribed "Ceci n'est pas une pipe" doubles in irreverence when a curved banana half fills in for the pipe; a Cowardly Lion's tail ends in a flourish of banana. Whether readers are wholly untutored or art history experts, the closer they look, the more jokes they will find. Fresh, funny and full of surprises. Ages 4-up.
