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. In the 2013 New Year's Honours List he was knighted for services to illustration.
"For pure fun, read again - and again - Quentin Blake's masterly Cockatoos" -- Gwynneth Bailey * TES * "A wonderfully enjoyable story" * Daily Mail * "Must be the funniest and subtles counting book, so funny you can't count anyway. Irresistibly daft, devastatingly droll" * Guardian * "There has never been, and probably never will be, a counting book as funny and delightful as this" * Books for your Children *
