"The master illustrator's glorious pictures take you into aorld of flying carpets and talking cowrie shells. A great collection of more unusual tales of adventure and magic from far away counties, beautfully told." --Angels amd Urchins, November 2010
About the Author
The Illustrator Quentin Blake is simply today's most popular children's illustrator. His books are loved by children all over the world. His titles include Mr Magnolia, Mrs Armitage and, of course, the many stories of Roald Dahl. THE AUTHOR John Yeoman wrote his first children's book (illustrated by Quentin Blake) immediately after leaving Cambridge University, where he read English. This began a collaboration which has continued for over forty years. He taught for twenty-eight years, mostly as Head of English at the Lycee Francais Charles de Gaulle in London, but retired to spend more time writing, reading and relaxing in France.
