By Quentin Blake

  • You’d never believe what Angelica Sprocket manages to fit into her pockets – and she has an awful lot of pockets.
  • ‘There’s a pocket for ducks and a pocket for boats, and a pocket with lovely straw hats – for GOATS’.
  • With more pockets for skateboards, icecreams, books and balloons, Angelica Sprocket is bound to be a firm favourite with children.
