This is the first time 'Kong' had ever appeared as a book and a book Anthony Browne was destined to illustate. If your not familar with Browne his books feature monkeys, chimps, Gorillas etc

Already familar with all three movies Im happy that the book covers the 3 phases of the story. Setting sail from New York. Skull Island. New York and the 8th Wonder of the world. Ann Darrow has a Marilyn Monroe appearance but I didnt find Kong scary enough, although the illustrations are very detailed. The book has 92 pages each with colour images telling the story. You could quite easily follow the story by images alone but I enjoyed the text and found it accurate. I think 6 + would appreciate this book.

The closing pages 86-92 are done for maximum effect, well done.

I love the famous last line "Oh no, it wasn't the aeroplanes ... It was Beauty that killer the Beast."
