A wonderfully funny rhyme by one of Britain's best loved author-illustrators.
Born in 1932, Quentin Blake has been drawing ever since he can remember and has always made his living as an illustrator. He has also taught, and for ten years was Head of the Illustration department at the Royal College of Art. He was made the first Children's Laureate in 1999, and has won the Whitbread Award, the Hans Christian Andersen Award for Illustration and the Kate Greenaway Medal among others.
"A delight from start to finish." The Guardian "Quentin Blake's illustrations are, as always, full of character and characters. I love the recurring ducks that drink through straws and jump at horns and the alligator escaping the page. Energetic, colourful and playful, it's a delight to read. It's a wild adventure in an overcoat that may just leave you wondering if you could be making better use of your own pockets." -- Daniel Hahn http://theultimatebookguide.blogspot.com/ "What a treat!...As always, Blake's familiar - but ever fresh - illustrations are packed with energy, humour and detail. You will not mind one bit being asked to share it over and over again." -- Rowan Stanfield Carousel "a delightful romp through the English language" Junior "Quentin Blake shows he is still a master of his craft in Angelica Sprocket's Pockets, which contains everything from kitchen sinks to alligators. Perfect for aged three-plus." -- Rachel Carlyle S (Supp. to Sunday Express)
