His fabulously popular children's books are read by children all over the world. He died in November 1990.Quentin Blake (Illustrator) 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.

    Review quote
    "The undisputed master-storyteller ... Artful, funny, profoundly inventive and touched with the blessed knowledge of how to tap the basest in a child's nature and lead it towards the best" Daily Mail "Roald Dahl invented a new kind of literature for children full of the awful and gross - an exagerration of the everyday underpinned by serious observations about our best and worst inclinations" Waterstones Books Quarterly
