Former Children’s Laureate Jacqueline Wilson must surely be responsible for convincing thousands of children that reading is cool. If your child is hooked on any of Jacqueline Wilson’s wonderful characters, from Tracy Beaker to Hetty Feather, you’ll want to make a beeline for the V&A Museum of Childhood in London’s East End.
The exhibition explores the author’s life and work with personal objects belonging to both her and her illustrator Nick Sharratt such as diaries, childhood photographs and draft manuscripts.
Dates: 5 April – 2 November 2014
