In Summer 2012 Quentin Blake completed a set of work for the Hillingdon Child Development Centre, which moved into a new home at Hillingdon Hospital.

The Team at the CDC had some special requests for Quentin, one of which was that the doors should be marked with a cat, an owl, a parakeet and so on, at child’s eye-level, so that the child in the waiting room could be asked to go not to, say, Room 3, but to look for the room with the purple owl on the door. Quentin drew a series of animals specially for this purpose – and coloured stickers of the same animals were also made to give to the children.
