Additional Information

New into Paperback, The Weed is an inspiring fable about the power of nature, encouraging children and adults alike to care for the environment and each other, from the highly acclaimed author and illustrator Quentin Blake. It is a charming, fantastical story about discovery, the potential for growth, the power of an idea and the importance of having faith in the unknown.

The Meadowsweet family suddenly and unexpectedly find themselves at the bottom of a giant crack in the earth. With the help of their pet bird, Octavia and a magical seed, the family go on a journey to the surface.

Quentin Blake 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 such as 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.

Quentin Blake has several other titles published with Tate: The Five of Us; Three Little Owls; Pens Ink & Places; Quentin Blake: Beyond the Page; and 100 Figures: The Unseen Art of Quentin Blake.
