The Lovereading4Kids comment
As the first Children’s Laureate, Quentin Blake created an original exhibition in the National Gallery, London for which he chose 26 of his favourite pictures. Some were illustrations from children’s books, others were pictures by artists such as Edward Hopper and Paula Rego. All were wonderful pictures that tell a story. Through Quentin Blake’s choices and his gentle notes about the pictures all young readers have the opportunity to enjoy all kinds of art and to bring their own meaning to it. ~ Julia Eccleshare
The Good Book Guide Review. A welcome reissue of this glorious introduction to art for children, based on a wonderful exhibition at the National Gallery in 2001. Quentin Blake guides readers through his 26 chosen paintings, and, in his own quirky drawings, points out the story each painting tells, encouraging children to look at art in a completely inspirational way. (Ages 6-12)

Tell Me a Picture by Quentin Blake
In 2001, Quentin Blake - the first Children's Laureate - chose twenty-six of his favourite paintings for an exhibition at the National Gallery. Very different artworks were chosen, some by fine artists and some by children's illustrators, but they all had one thing in common: a story to tell. The accompanying book urges children to use their imaginations and look for the stories in the pictures.
Reissued with a new introduction from the author, Tell Me A Picture will show a new generation the adventures that await in looking at art.
