From the Publisher
In Tell Me A Picture, Quentin Blake has chosen twenty-six paintings and drawings, all with stories in mind. The pictures are by very different artists, but each one is packed full of detail and ready to tell stories to everyone. Some of the pictures illustrate stories you may already know, like that of the Trojan Horse, but there is no reason why they could not be illustrations of stories you make up yourself. Quentin Blake's characters pull you in by introducing every image, pointing our details and asking questions-Your imagination will do the rest!
