Celebrating Diversity in Books

Quentin Blake is one of my favourite illustrators.  I have fond memories of his work from reading Roald Dahl as a child.  In this BBC interview, he talks a little about his book The Five of Us and why there should be more books that give a positive image of people with disabilities.  This book includes a group of children who all have different abilities and  disabilities.
