Animal Tales

Today The British Library in London opened Animal Tales in its Entrance Hall Gallery, a free exhibition exploring animals on the page. From Aesop’s Fables to Ted Hughes’s Crow, the stories told about animals are often stories about us. Why do they play such an important role in literature for adults and children alike? Shown is the Title page from CS Lewis' The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (London 1950) illustrated by Pauline Baynes. This free show looks perfect for summer holiday visits for kids (CLICK).
