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.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 3-- Blake's frolicksome illustrations wrap around six rambunctious participation poems, the first and last of which all but demand that audiences "all join in." Tucked between are gleeful noisemakers, dapper ducks, exhilarating slides, musical kettles, and cacophonous cats, all captured in theircomic quintessence by Blake's colorful pen-and-watercolor drawings. Each poem offers a subtle invitation for added verses. At times the illustrations surpass their text or vice versa, but overall they are splendid. The poems are rousing good fun, and when they are at their best the book becomes like a well-loved coat one wishes to toss aside to better enjoy a romp. The creative writing potential, the printed poems to refer to if they slip from memory, and the joyful cartoons guarantee repeated delight. --Jody McCoy, Casady School, Oklahoma City
