The Lovereading4Kids comment
Stuffed full of happiness, Patrick is the story of all the wonderful, life enhancing things that happen when Patrick plays his violin. Patrick buys a magical violin from a market stall and immediately finds that by playing a few notes he can make fish jump and cows dance. Soon he has created an exuberant magical procession complete with fireworks and a cast full of happy people. Quentin Blake breathes hope into all. Quentin Blake is probably best known as the illustrator for all Roald Dahl’s books including The BFG and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but Quentin is an author as well as an illustrator and his picture books, of which this is one are truly stunning and will bring much laughter and smiles to both parent and child in the nursery at bedtime. Click here to see a selection of these fabulous books all of which will be enjoyed equally by toddlers and by adults!
