At the British Library

An exhibition not to miss, although it will be coming down after 28th June, is Twinkle Twinkle Little Bat, which has a wonderfully comprehensive selection of 1st edition children's poetry classics on display. Set out in glass cabinets both the text and the illustrations bring back memories of childhood. Mervyn Peake is represented by two of his most famous and loved interpretations, with a open page showing the crocodile from Alice and another of The Ancient Mariner.
