You're Only Young Twice

Quentin Blake's drawings have been entertaining children and their parents for as long as any of us can remember, but this is the first time he has illustrated a book specifically for his own generation. Characteristically, it's humane and extremely funny at the same time, and required reading, whatever your age.


"The age range? 60-plus but is seems well worth stocking, perhaps next to the till, as a possible pick-up for grandparents."

"A joyous celebration of the art of ageing"
The Oldie

"There are folk we can recognise on every page. Vivacious, joyful, eccentric, artistic, comforting oldies. They are all there!"

"Quentin Blake's irrepressible people of a certain age romp through a virtually wordless delight... a wonderful, creative view of ageing and a life affirming pleasure"
School Librarian

"These wonderful, exuberant images of 'mature' people - still young at heart - enjoying themselves, and very often in trees - are unmissable!"
