Angelica Sprocket's Pockets
A wonderfully funny rhyme by one of Britain's best loved author-illustrators.
Angelica Sprocket lives next door. Her overcoat has pockets galore! And you'll never guess what's in them... Prepare to be surprised, thrilled and tickled pink by Angelica Sprocket's never-ending pockets, and the marvellous things she keeps in them!
"Quentin Blake's illustrations are, as always, full of character and characters. I love the recurring ducks that drink through straws and jump at horns and the alligator escaping the page. Energetic, colourful and playful, it's a delight to read. It's a wild adventure in an overcoat that may just leave you wondering if you could be making better use of your own pockets." - Daniel Hahn, http://theultimatebookguide.blogspot.com/
"What a treat!...As always, Blake's familiar - but ever fresh - illustrations are packed with energy, humour and detail. You will not mind one bit being asked to share it over and over again." - Rowan Stanfield, Carousel
"a delightful romp through the English language" - Junior
"Quentin Blake shows he is still a master of his craft in Angelica Sprocket's Pockets, which contains everything from kitchen sinks to alligators. Perfect for aged three-plus." - Rachel Carlyle, S (Supp. to Sunday Express)
"A delight from start to finish." - The Guardian
