And I may be some time.
Have a lovely bank holiday weekend!
If you're in London and in need of something to do during the final rainy week of the school holidays, then I suggest get down to the Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green and visit the Judith Kerr Retrospective: From The Tiger Who Came To Tea to Mog and Pink Rabbit.
Judith Kerr has written and illustrated many of the most popular children's picture books from the 1970s to the present day - who could not want to own grumpy but lovely cat, Mog, or have a tiger come to tea? She has also written three very interesting semi-biographical novels about escaping from Nazi Germany and moving to a new life in England via Switzerland and France.
I visited the exhibition earlier this week and was in awe of all the beautiful original illustrations of some of my favourite books from my childhood. I wanted to take them home with me. The exhibition is very informative, particularly explaining how Kerr incorporated her own family and pets into the stories. Younger visitors can also pretend to have tea with a tiger or snuggle down in Mog's comfy basket.
If you're interested in children's book illustration this exhibition should not be missed!
(Exhibition closes Sunday 4th September.)
