Description

In 2001, Quentin Blake – the first Children’s Laureate – chose twenty-six of his favourite paintings for an exhibition at the National Gallery. Very different artworks were chosen, some by fine artists and some by children’s illustrators, but they all had one thing in common: a story to tell.

The accompanying book urges children to use their imaginations and look for the stories in the pictures. Reissued with a new introduction from the author, Tell Me A Picture will show a new generation the adventures that await in looking at art.

The author

QUENTIN BLAKE  is one of the best-known illustrators of our time, and his books with a wide range of authors, including Joan Aiken, Russell Hoban, Michael Rosen and Roald Dahl, have been treasured by generations of children throughout the world. In 1999 he became the first Children's Laureate. In 2005 he was awarded a CBE, and in 2013 he was knighted for services to illustration. Quentin lives in London.
