The Weed is a new title from the highly acclaimed author/illustrator Quentin Blake.

An inspiring fable about the power of nature, encouraging children and adults alike to care for the environment and each other.

The Meadowsweet family suddenly and expectedly 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.

A charming, fantastical story about discovery, the potential for growth, the power of an idea and the importance of having faith in the unknown.

He taught at the Royal College of Art for twenty years and for several years was head of the Illustration Department. He has written and illustrated books of his own, and has collaborated with writers such as Michael Rosen, Russell Hoban and John Yeoman. He is probably best known for his having illustrated all the books for children by Roald Dahl.

He has also illustrated classic works such as A Christmas Carol, Don Quixote, and Candide.He has also produced many pictures for hospitals and other public spaces.
