Lester and the Unusual Pet

Lester and the unusual pet

I was wandering around Brighton a few weeks ago doing research for the book I am currently illustrating – Witches, Hats and all that by Aprill Harper. One book I picked up at a local charity shop was called Lester and the Unusual pet which was written and drawn by Quentin Blake, one of the greatest children’s illustrators of all time. It was printed and published in 1975 (My birth year).

I did a quick search on Google when I returned and found that it is currently out of print. Quite surprising really, I would have thought that books by a master like Quentin would sell like hotcakes. It is a charming little book, which I am storing safely as it was surely a bargain buy!
If you want to get a copy, Amazon is your best bet – cheapest price I can find is £49.99!
