About this deal

The military dispatches four Curtiss Helldiver biplanes (with Lewis Guns, and Browning M1918s) to destroy Kong. Denham hurls a gas bomb, knocking Kong out, whereupon he exults in the opportunity to take the giant back to New York: "He's always been King of his world. We take pride in offering a wide selection of used books, from classics to hidden gems, ensuring there is something for every literary palate. Anthony Browne is the acclaimed author and illustrator of such prize-winning bestsellers as Gorilla (winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal and the Kurt Maschler Award), Willy the Wizard, My Dad, Voices in the Park (winner of Kurt Maschler Award) and Zoo (winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal).

But his collaborator and subsequently co-director and producer of the film, not only did so but it is more than likely a relation of his, Richard Merrion Cooper who wrote the text of this book to accompany Anthony Browne's superb illustrations.Kong takes Ann up to his mountain lair, where a giant snake emerges from a bubbling swamp and tries to strangle Kong, who kills it as well.

I bought this for my nine year old son, who is a big fan of the film of King Kong, and he was riveted. This is Anthony Browne’s retelling of the classic King Kong story produced in a large, children's picture book form. Miss Ann Darrow, the beautiful young lady that Kong captures, bears more than a passing resemblance to Marilyn Monroe, and the book perfectly captures the time period.They set sail aboard the Venture, an old tramp steamer that travels for weeks in the direction of Indonesia, where Denham claims they will be shooting. Es comprensible la historia, ya que como una persona me dijo por ahí, no podemos juzgar el pasado con los ojos del presente.
