Love it

7th January 2000 at 00:00
Patrick, the first picture book written and illustrated by the Children's Laureate, Quentin Blake, is out of print until March when Collins publishes a paperback - another reason why Gwynneth Bailey, language co-ordinator at Aldborough primary school, Norwich, treasures her copy.

"This celebratory book has been a favourite in my classroom for years," she says. Wonderful things happen when Patrick buys a violin.

"Patrick is a fine introduction to other Blake figures: Simpkin, Mister Magnolia, Professor Dupont and the doughty Mrs Armitage."

What would you rescue if the school was on fire, and why? pound;40 for each one used. Write to Love it, Friday, TES, Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield, London E1W 1BX
