Quentin Blake: 80 and still a hit with youth

British illustrator Quentin Blake's drawings can be both terrific and terrifying at the same time, which is why he is still a children's favorite even as he celebrates his 80th birthday. Also, Morocco sells itself as the ideal shooting location in the hope of attracting film tycoons from around the globe.

And Georja Calvin-Smith meets American author Nic Mcdonnell, who wowed critics with his first novel when he was just 17. Ten years later and with several more successes under his belt, he's in Paris ahead of the publication of the French version of two more of his books.
