Yeoman, John

A Drink of Water and Other Stories

(3) 4-6 Illustrated by Quentin Blake. The book that launched Yeoman and Blake's careers as children's book creators is here reissued. Blake's scribbly, energetic, personality-rich pen-and-ink drawings (overlaid with pink and gold) grace seven original animal fables written by Yeoman. The collection is probably of more interest to collectors than to contemporary child readers. A new foreword by Blake is included.
