Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


'It's quite get up one morning and to be told that you have become the Children's Laureate; even more extraordinary to be the first.' Quentin Blake Charting Quentin Blake's experience as the first ever Children's Laureate, this book explores what the author perceived his new job to entail, and also takes us through the many other books, illustrations and projects that he undertook during this time. It is a fascinating insight into not only this most significant of roles, but also into the work of one of our best loved author-illustrators.
