16 December is Quentin Blake's birthday - so to celebrate, we're listening to his wonderful reading of Roald Dahl's Esio Trot
Sir Quentin Blake first worked with Roald Dahl on The Enormous Crocodile in 1978. He went on to illustrate almost all of Roald Dahl's children's books, and his unique style has, for many children, become synonymous with those stories.
In 2013, Quentin Blake recorded his own audio version of Esio Trot. In it, he gives voice for the first time to characters that he was the first to illustrate.
In honour of his birthday, you can listen to an extract of Quentin Blake reading from Esio Trot right here.
