Quentin Blake is one of today's most popular and best-loved children's illustrators. He has won the Whitbread Award, the Kate Greenaway Medal, and the Emil/Kurt Maschler Award, among numerous others.From Booklist:
This large-format volume showcases 16 nursery rhymes, highlighting verses that are less familiar than the standard fare but no less enjoyable. Ranging in tone from understated wit to soaring high spirits, Blake’s vivid ink-and-watercolor illustrations can turn the most obscure, perplexing rhyme into a minidrama that is not just understandable but also well worth remembering. A brilliant, prolific artist, perhaps best known in the U.S. as the original illustrator of Roald Dahl’s books, Blake served as the first Children’s Laureate for the UK. Though first published in 1983, this collection is no longer widely available in many American libraries. The new paperback edition offers a chance to energize the nursery rhyme collection with an interpretation of Mother Goose that’s as fresh and timeless as the rhymes themselves.
