About the Authors

John Yeoman

John Yeoman was for many years Head of English at the French Lycée in London. His collaboration with Quentin Blake began in 1960, and has resulted in a long list of successful children’s books of which a number of earlier well-loved titles are now being republished by Andersen Press for new generations of readers.

Quentin Blake

Quentin Blake has been drawing ever since he can remember. He taught illustration for over twenty years at the Royal College of Art, of which he is an honorary professor. He has won many prizes, including the Hans Christian Andersen Award for Illustration, the Eleanor Farjeon Award and the Kate Greenaway Medal, and in 1999 he was appointed the first Children’s Laureate. In the 2013 New Year’s Honours List he was knighted for services to illustration.


Praise for Mouse Trouble

“This is a clever tale that uses very accessible language. There is so much detail in (Quentin Blake's) illustrations that each time you look at them you notice something new.”

Jo Heffer, The Bookbag

“Combining the writing talent of John Yeoman and the wonderful illustrations of Quentin Blake is inspired! This book should be in every home and school library.”

Parents In Touch

“Blake's wonderful illustrations mean that children would want to return to this book again and again. A lovely story.”

EYE

“The nocturnal shenanigans make this an especially appealing bedtime read-aloud, and the lengthier narrative will tempt and challenge adventurous beginning readers.”
