Synopsis

Hans Christian Andersen Medal winner Anthony Browne brings his polished artwork to another humorous, heartwarming tale about the charming chimp and his unexpected success.

It’s not easy being a chimp in a world of oversized gorillas, and in WILLY AND HUGH, our scrawny hero is lonely for a pal. Hulking Hugh seems an unlikely candidate, but as Willy discovers, the oddest couples can make the best of friends.
