Description

I think she will continue to enjoy this book for a few years to come, eventually joining in with the story as we read. The storyline is entertaining with good use of rhyming language and the drawings are just brilliant. Quentin Blake shows he is still a master of his craft in Angelica Sprocket's Pockets , which contains everything from kitchen sinks to alligators.

Limited to a production of 90 and numbered in pencil but not signed, this print is supplied with a Certificate of Authenticity, and is presented in a double bevelled conservation mount. Prepare to be surprised, thrilled and tickled pink by Angelica Sprocket's never-ending pockets, and the marvellous things she keeps in them! The pictures are big and bright enough to capture her attention, while the rhyme is interesting and engaging, all without being over stimulating.Angelica’s small chums are enchanted by the contents which include mice, cheese, hankies, frying pans, umbrellas and much more. The images have been taken from original watercolours from some of Quentin Blakes’s most loved picture books. Each illustration is beautifully presented on heavyweight 315gsm cotton rag paper in an attractive off-white double mount complete with Artist Information, Certificate of Authenticity and is individually numbered and hand embossed as an authentication of quality. Quentin was the inaugural Children's Laureate (1999-2001), an experience he recorded in his book Laureate's Progress. He taught illustration for over twenty years at the Royal College of Art, of which he is an honorary professor.

He has won many major prizes for illustration, including the Kate Greenaway Medal (1980) and the Red House Children's Book Award (1981) for Mister Magnolia. Please Note: The edition number shown in the thumbnail above is not necessarily the one which is available . All my grandchildren love it even the older ones, and it makes the perfect present for self reading or being read to. As always, Blake's familiar - but ever fresh - illustrations are packed with energy, humour and detail.Además, al tener textos cortos, mi hija (que está aprendiendo a leer en inglés) puede leer alguna frase por sí misma, aportando un poco más de diversión. Angelica Sprocket's Pockets’ is one of nine Official 90th Birthday Collector’s Edition Prints, celebrating Quentin Blake’s 90th Birthday, Friday 16th December 2022, from his Official publishers, Aquarelle Publishing Ltd.
