Read full description of the books:
This is the story of Patrick. Patrick is the story of a violinist who manages to change color with his music. Patrick buys a enchanted violin from a marketplace and promptly finds out that by playing a few notes he can make fish jump and cows dance. Soon he has created an exuberant magical procession complete with fireworks and a cast full of happy people. I was fascinating to read this book.
This could be used in the classroom to predict (or write about) what might happen next? And write a story about another musical instrument.

Blake was educated at Chislehurst and Sidcup Grammar School. His English teacher, JH Walsh, influenced his ambition to become involved in literature. His first published drawing was for the satirical magazine Punch, at the age of 16. He read English Literature at Downing College, Cambridge (1953-6), received his postgraduate teaching diploma from the University of London, and later studied at the Chelsea School of Art. He gained another teaching diploma at the Institute of Education before working at the Royal College of Art.
Blake gained a reputation as a reliable and humorous illustrator of over 300 children's books. As well as illustrating the books of others, including Roald Dahl and Elizabeth Bowen, Blake has written numerous books of his own. As of 2006, he has participated in the writing and/or illustrating of 323 books (of which he wrote 35 himself, and 18 were by Dahl). He taught at the Royal College of Art for over twenty years, and was head of the Illustration department from 1978 to 1986. He recently illustrated David Walliams's debut book, The Boy in the Dress and his more recent book Mr Stink.
