Author Bio
Quentin Blake
Blake attended Downing College in Cambridge and the London University Institute of Education as well as the Chelsea School of Art. He was a visiting tutor at the Royal College of Art in London where he also served as head of the illustration department for 10 years. Blake has illustrated the works of several prominent authors including Joan Aiken, Tana Hoban, and Margaret Mahy. He also had a long-term collaboration with Roald Dahl, which produced, among other works, THE B.F.G. and THE WITCHES. In 1980, Blake was awarded the Kate Greenaway Medal for his book MISTER MAGNOLIA.

Encouraged to draw and paint as a child, Russell Hoban eventually went on to write and illustrate children's books, many with his first wife, Lillian. However, he also enjoyed writing, and has written several novels for adults. "Riddley Walker" is the most acclaimed of these novels, winning the National Book Critics Circle Award, the Nebula Award, and the John W. Campbell Memorial Award, as well as the Australian Science Fiction Achievement Award.
