Children's Fiction in Britain

A British Council panel exhibition (1990)

Children's literature, like adult literature, springs from and reflects the climate of a time and a place. This exhibition presents forty-eight of the best British children's authors of this century. Starting up with the life and work of Beatrix Potter, the exhibition undertakes an excursion through the works of internationally renowned writers such as J R R Tolkien's The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, A A Milne's Winnie the Pooh, Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book up to present-day writers like Joan Aiken, Roald Dahl, Ted Hughes and Penelope Lively, and touches on multicultural aspects by reviving overseas childhood memoirs, eg James Berry's.

The exhibition consists of twenty-one A1 sized laminated multicoloured panels.
