In 2001, Quentin Blake - the first Children' s Laureate - chose twenty-six of his favourite paintings for an exhibition at the National Gallery. Very different artworks were chosen, some by fine artists and some by children' s illustrators, but they all had one thing in common: a story to tell.

The accompanying book urges children to use their imaginations and look for the stories in the pictures. Reissued with a new introduction from the author, Tell Me A Picture will show a new generation the adventures that await in looking at art.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Children's Book Of The Week

"Reissued for a new generation, this classic has lost none of its power."


"The children's art criticism is engagingly artless but encourages curiosity."


"An unusual and stimulating approach to art."


"As the first Children' s Laureate, Quentin Blake created an original exhibition in the National Gallery, London, for which he chose 26 of his favourite pictures. Some were illustrations from children' s books, others were pictures by artists such as Edward Hopper and Paula Rego. All were wonderful pictures that tell a story. Through Quentin Blake' s choices and his gentle notes about the pictures, all young readers have the opportunity to enjoy all kinds of art and to bring their own meaning to it."

"An unusual and stimulating approach to art."
