Uncle

"When I wondered which book I wished I'd written, Uncle by J. P. Martin sprang to mind...perhaps because it was the first book I read which made me feel (at nine) grown-up, as if I was in on the joke as well as caught up in the fantasy...ÝThe stories" have a wonderfully improvisational, careless quality, matched by riotous illustrations by Quentin Blake...Uncle is an utterly indulgent book, which veers recklessly between the childish and the sophisticated" --"The Guardian "(London) "The "Times Literary Supplement "called the books 'spellbinding', the "Observer "predicted that they could become 'a classic in the great English nonsense tradition', while the "Times Educational Supplement" likened the books to Alice in Wonderland, a comparison that has been made many times since...Uncle's disappearance continues to mystify his devotees. The books contain many of the elements of the best English children's literature. There is the blurring of the line between the human and the animal kingdom, made familiar by Beatrix Potter and A.A. Milne. There is the quirky humor of 'Toad in the Hall' or 'Alice'. And the books are illustrated by the wonderful drawings of Quentin Blake." --"The Economist" "The books are very funny, installing a large cast of unlikely characters...in a world of mildly squiffy logic...And the illustrations are among Quentin Blake's best work, scrawls and splotches that finally and unarguably distill character. But most important, this is political satire of a high order -- "Animal Farm" for pre-teens, but wittier and more relevant to our own world." --"The Independent" (London) "There can be few people under 50, and nobody under 40, who don't feel that ÝBlake's"merry or melancholy figures were part of their childhood. He has been described as a 'national institution, ' and he as the trappings: an OBE...the first Children's Laureate...as well as winning Hans Christian Andersen Award from the International Board on Books for Young Pe
Portrait
J. P. Martin (1880-1966) published his Uncle stories at the urging of his children, for whom he created. After the last war, he moved to the village of Timberscombe in Somerset, where he served in the small chapel. Six Uncle books were published in the series, the last in 1973, seven years after his death. QUENTIN BLAKE is one of the best-known illustrators of our time, and his books with a wide range of authors, including Joan Aiken, Russell Hoban, Michael Rosen and Roald Dahl, have been treasured by generations of children throughout the world. In 1999 he became the first Children's Laureate. In 2005 he was awarded a CBE, and in 2013 he was knighted for services to illustration. Quentin lives in London.
