Toby is fed up. Fed up with books, fed up with toys, fed up with everything. But when he walks through the magic mirror, things are amazingly different. Toby can hardly believe his eyes! Anthony Browne's first book is full of the surreal details and visual humour that have made him one of the world's most popular and acclaimed picture book artists.
Anthony Browne has won many prizes for his work, including the Hans Christian Andersen Award in 2000 for his services to children's literature - the first British illustrator to win the prize since 1956. In his role as the Children's Laureate he has inspired children of all ages to play the shape game! Anthony has written over 40 books and lives in Kent.
