About the Book

What's in a painting, or an illustration? Renowned artist Quentin Blake wants to know, and to encourage young readers to explore the question, too. In "Tell Me a Picture, he chooses 26 works for the stories they tell. Uccello's grand and gorgeous "Saint George and the Dragon is here, as well as works by 20th-century talents like painter Edward Hopper and illustrator Roberto Innocenti. In "Tell Me a Picture, Blake's own quirky characters introduce each image, pointing out details and asking questions, encouraging engagement. Also here are short introductions to each artist and work, along with suggestions for helping children think about art without being intimidated.
