Marvellous & Mischievous
On tour from the British Library this interactive, family friendly exhibition showcases some of your favourite rebellious characters from children’s books. Featuring over 50 books, manuscripts and original artwork, the exhibition includes characters such as Tracy Beaker, Pippi Longstocking, Jane Eyre, Dirty Bertie, and Matilda.
Discover original artworks by much-loved illustrators including Sir Quentin Blake (Matilda), Nick Sharratt (Tracy Beaker), and Judith Kerr (When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit).
The exhibition will highlight how rebels in children’s literature have been presented in many different ways: characters who stand up for what they believe in, break away from convention, have a cause they are striving for, are extremely resilient, survive difficult situations, or are just slightly mischievous.
Spanning over 300 years, Suffolk Archives invite you to rediscover your favourite characters, as well as meet new ones. Explore what it means to be a rebel!
