Quentin Blake nominated for Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2010

17th September 2010

Quentin Blake has been nominated in both categories of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2010.

The artist illustrated all but one of Roald Dahl's books for children, including Fantastic Mr Fox, George's Marvellous Medicine and James and the Giant Peach.

This year, he has been nominated for an award in the six and under category of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize for his book Angelica Sprocket's Pockets.

Other nominated authors in this category include Anna Kemp, Louise Yates, Jeanne Willis and Chris Wormell.

Blake's illustrations in comedian David Walliams' book Mr Stink have also earned him a nomination in the funniest book for children aged seven to 14 category.

One of the judges of the prize, comedienne Shappi Khorsandi, said that judging the shortlist was a 'ridiculous amount of fun'.

'Reading the very high standard of children's books reminded me how I came to love reading in the first place,' she added.

This year, Roald Dahl Day has been expanded to cover an entire month packed full of events to celebrate the late author's life and works.
