In 2001, Quentin Blake - the first Children’s Laureate - chose twenty six of his favourite paintings for an exhibition at the National Gallery. Very different artworks were chosen, but they all had one thing in common: a story to tell.

In this book, Quentin urges children to use their imaginations and look for stories in pictures everywhere. Reissued with a new introduction from the author, Tell Me a Picture will show a new generation the adventures that await in looking at art.
