About this deal

Anthony Browne, a Hans Christian Andersen Medalist, is the author-illustrator of many acclaimed books for children, including Silly Billy and Little Beauty. Browne essentially converts key scenes from the movie into pictures and provides a streamline summary of the film. When a group of people from Hollywood looking to make a great movie in a dangerous place arrive to Skull Island and disturb his peacefulness, Kong will react. FIRST EDITION WITH THESE ILLUSTRATIONS 1994, 4to, 300 x 230 mm, 11¾ x 9 inches, dark blue boards, silver lettered spine, 92 pages.

This is the first time 'Kong' had ever appeared as a book and a book Anthony Browne was destined to illustate. Taken from the only land he ever knew and stuck into manacles in loud, brassy New York City, he becomes the hero. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. Además en el personaje femenino se plasma el síndrome de cenicienta, ya que por una parte Kong buscaba cuidar a Ann y por otra parte su prometido salía siempre en su rescate.

King Kong is captured on a remote island and taken to New York, where he escapes and climbs the Empire State Building.

Ann Darrow has a Marilyn Monroe appearance but I didnt find Kong scary enough, although the illustrations are very detailed. The text is beautifully worded and is matched by Browne’s equally impressive (as always) illustrations. This is Anthony Browne’s retelling of the classic King Kong story produced in a large, children's picture book form. Even when King Kong takes Beauty back into his cave, it’s portrayed as a vast cave, one which could even swallow the great Kong. His enthralling story involves battles with dinosaurs, daring rescues and incredible escapes - endless thrills lead up to one of the most famous climaxes of all time!Biography: Anthony Browne is the acclaimed author and illustrator of such prize-winning bestsellers as Gorilla (winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal and the Kurt Maschler Award), Willy the Wizard, My Dad, Voices in the Park (winner of Kurt Maschler Award) and Zoo (winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal). un giro a la historia de King Kong en el que im genes realistas refuerzan y expresan tanto las sensaciones como los sentimientos de los personajes. All goes well until photographers, using the blinding flashbulbs of the era, begin snapping shots of Ann and Jack, who is now her fiancé. It’s considered a Graphic Novel but is short enough that it could also hold a child's attention span.

Este libro plantea la barbarie ejercida por el hombre civilizado que act a con mayor brutalidad que la "bestia" a la que combate. En la versión de Anthony Brown las ilustraciones son maravillosas, tienen un nivel de detalle fantástico, me llegó a sorprender de los detalles que presenta, es increíble la ilustración.

I think it portrays a few sad and timeless truths: that humans break the spirits of strong and powerful creatures; greed is dangerous; we resort to killing as a way to solve problems. The famous end scene of Kong atop the Empire State Building, swatting away the fighter planes pelting him with their constant stream of bullets was just as dramatic and descriptive as other adaptations. The language use is accurate for the time setting and almost poetic in nature, giving a kind of ‘film noir’ edge to the story.
