To celebrate our current exhibition Marvellous and Mischievous Literature’s Young Rebels we’ve put together a selection of activities we think you’ll enjoy.
The exhibition from the British Library is a celebration of rebels in children’s literature, it examines what it means to be a rebel through an array of characters from some of the most memorable children’s books.
On display until July 3, come along and explore with your family and friends and rediscover all your favourite book characters.
