Quentin Blake is one of Britain's most successful illustrators. He has illustrated nearly three hundred books and he was Roald Dahl's favourite illustrator. He has won many awards including the Whitbread Award and the Kate Greenaway Medal and taught for over twenty years at the Royal College of Art. In 1999 he became the first ever Children's Laureate and in 2013 he was knighted in the New Year's Honours.From School Library Journal:
Grade 6–9—This scrapbook-style book is a wonderful addition to Dahl's original biography, Boy (Farrar, 1984), the full text of which is included here. The stories of the author's life are interspersed with photographs, drawings, letters, school report cards, postcards, and memorabilia, which help to illustrate his fascinating life experiences. Readers can see how eccentric family members have made their way into his novels. Dahl's many fans will eat up this glimpse into his world, and history lovers will appreciate the detail of his record keeping. This is a great recommendation for middle school libraries in which engaging biographies are few and far between.—Mairead McInnes, Oakdale-Bohemia Middle School, NY
