Reviews

"Another brilliant book from Quentin Blake and John Yeoman reissued for a new generation." -- Clare Poole Booksellers' Choice, The Bookseller

Author description

Quentin Blake has been drawing ever since he can remember. He taught illustration for over twenty years at the Royal College of Art, of which he is an honorary professor. He has won many prizes, including the Hans Christian Andersen Award for Illustration, the Eleanor Farjeon Award and the Kate Greenaway Medal, and in 1999 he was appointed the first Children's Laureate. In the 2013 New Year's Honours List he was knighted for services to illustration. John Yeoman was for many years Head of English at the French Lycee in London. His collaboration with Quentin Blake began in 1960, and has resulted in a long list of successful children's books of which a number of earlier well-loved titles are now being republished by Andersen Press for new generations of readers.
