Anthony Browne  
Voices in the Park I called his name…
I settled on a bench…
I was amazed…
I felt really, really happy…

Four people enter a park, and through their eyes we see four different visions. There’s the bossy woman, the sad man, the lonely boy, and the young girl whose warmth touches those she meets. As the story moves from one voice to another, their perspectives are reflected in the shifting landscapes and seasons. Anthony Browne’s rich, subtle art and his gentle text create an intriguing, many layered, thought provoking book that demands to be read.
