'A is for Apples, some green and some red, B is for Breakfast we're having in bed.' With a simple rhyming text and characteristically brilliant illustrations from Quentin Blake, this wonderful "ABC" is an absolute must for young children just getting to grips with their alphabet.
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. In the 2013 New Year's Honours List he was knighted for services to illustration.
