A charming drawing by Dahl's most original and imaginative collaborator, Quentin Blake to illustrate a poem called "The Pig" by Roald Dahl.
"In England once there lived a big
And wonderfully clever pig.
To everybody it was plain
That Piggy had a massive brain.
He worked out sums inside his head,
There was no book he hadn't read,
He knew what made an aeroplane fly,
He knew how engines worked and why,
He knew all this, but in the end
One question drove him round the bend:
He simply couldn't puzzle out
What LIFE was really all about"

PROVENANCE: Produced for The Roald Dahl Foundation as the grand prize in the Quentin Blake Award Competition.
