Voices in the Park

Author: Anthony Browne
Illustrator: Anthony Browne
Publisher: Corgi

In Voices in the Park, Anthony Browne revisits territory first explored in one of his earliest books A Walk in the Park (9781406341645, Walker £7.99). The story is told from the points of view of two adults and their children taking their dogs for a walk in the park. The words briefly convey the different attitudes and lifestyles of the four characters. The exciting pictures have many details to explore, and intertextual links can be made with famous paintings and with some of the illustrator’s other books.
