Beatrice and Vanessa

By John Yeoman
Illustrated by Quentin Blake

An unlikely pair of heroines take on a pack of wolves in this hilarious story, illustrated by the inimitable Quentin Blake.

Beatrice, the ewe, and Vanessa, the nanny-goat, have spent their whole lives chomping and nattering in the same field. One dull day they decide to go on holiday, only taking with them some balloons and something more surprising, both of which turn out to be very handy . . .

  • Multi award-winning author, illustrator and former Children's Laureate Quentin Blake has won the Costa Award, the Kate Greenaway Medal and the Emil/Kurt Maschler Award, among numerous others.
  • Quentin Blake was awarded the J M Barrie Award 2008.
