LoveReading View on You're Only Young Twice

A joyous celebration through Quentin's uniquely original illustrations of the art of ageing.  A delightful little picture book to share with any child, but parents and grandparents will delight in its contents too, so in that respect it will make an ideal companion to the bookshelf in the loo as well as the nursery bookshelf!  Whether it's making music, keeping fit or looking back on life, Quentin Blake, one of the world's favourite illustrators, shows just how much fun growing old can be.

You're Only Young Twice Synopsis

Quentin Blake's drawings have been entertaining children and their parents for as long as any of us can remember, but this is the first time he has illustrated a book specifically for his own generation. Characteristically, it's humane and extremely funny at the same time, and if you are sixty or over or even thinking about it, this book is required reading.
