Author(s): Anthony Browne
Willy is different. He likes to read books and listen to music; he's no good at sports, although he tries; and, wherever he goes he gets laughed at. But when he's threatened by the horrible Buster Nose he really comes into his own.
* "Browne can't help including his trademark surreal touches... but he also effectively conveys the sheer physical oppressiveness that bullies exert over their victims. Funny and thought-provoking at the same time." Book Trusted
