Angelica Sprocket's Pockets Hardcover – September 1, 2010
"A delight from start to finish." The Guardian "Quentin Blake's illustrations are, as always, full of character and characters. I love the recurring ducks that drink through straws and jump at horns and the alligator escaping the page. Energetic, colourful and playful, it's a delight to read. It's a wild adventure in an overcoat that may just leave you wondering if you could be making better use of your own pockets." -- Daniel Hahn http://theultimatebookguide.blogspot.com/ "What a treat!...As always, Blake's familiar - but ever fresh - illustrations are packed with energy, humour and detail. You will not mind one bit being asked to share it over and over again." -- Rowan Stanfield Carousel "a delightful romp through the English language" Junior "Quentin Blake shows he is still a master of his craft in Angelica Sprocket's Pockets, which contains everything from kitchen sinks to alligators. Perfect for aged three-plus." -- Rachel Carlyle S (Supp. to Sunday Express)
