no post about roald dahl is complete without mention of…

Quentin Blake!  Blake is the amazing artist who illustrated Roald Dahl’s children books and since I wrote about Dahl yesterday, I simply have to post about Blake.  I love the art he did for these book and when I see his drawings I am automatically taken back to being a little kid reading one of Dahl’s fantastical tales.  Pure nostalgic bliss!

A mini tribute below…

Charlie (of Chocolate Factory fame) and Willy Wonka

Matilda

  1. When I read “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and “James and the Giant Peach”, I remember the illustrations being done by another artist. Do newer editions have illustrations by Blake?
