Product description

Amazon Review

Loveykins by renowned illustrator and former Children’s Laureate Quentin Blake is the tale of a baby bird that falls out of its nest and is discovered by spinster of the parish Angela Bowling.

Angela takes the bird home and names him Augustus--although he's more often referred to by his pet name, Loveykins. She proceeds to spoil him absolutely rotten--feeding him cakes and chocolates and taking him out for walks in a pushchair, swaddled in various jumpers and blankets to stop him catching cold. Augustus grows to mammoth proportions with all this indulgence and has to be kept in the garden shed. However, a heavy storm one night gives Augustus the opportunity to break out of his sheltered life and Nature takes over…

Blake's trademark quirky illustrative style is perfect for this gently satirical story. The facial expressions of the characters (especially Augustus's look of bliss when he’s being fed or his stunned reaction to being wrapped up like a baby) are a source of delight throughout. Suitable for ages five and upwards. --Alison Drury

Review

"Blake's drawing has an almost reckless vitality and a distinctive, mercurial line - which he seems only to have to fling at an idea in order to retrieve a spontaneous, expressive image" (Joanna Carey Guardian)
