Additional Information

With this characteristically beautiful new story, celebrated author and illustrator Quentin Blake shows us – with the wisdom born of a lifetime observing humans and other creatures – that small acts of kindness are the stuff of life.

When Mr Filkins sets off for his 90th birthday party he has no idea how eventful the journey will be. Crossing the desert to visit his family, armed only with a picnic, a walking stick and an umbrella, Mr Filkins faces (and hides from) many remarkable dangers. Luckily he has in his backpack something quite ordinary that turns out to have extraordinary powers.

Quentin Blake is an author and illustrator, who taught for many years at the Royal College of Art, where he was head of the Illustration Department from 1978 to 1986. As well as being known for his collaborations with writers including Russell Hoban and Roald Dahl, his own creations, such as Mister Magnolia, have contributed to his reputation as one of the world’s leading illustrators and an inspiration for artists everywhere.
