It makes me inordinately happy to find that my latest book When I Was Small is available in the British Library.
I've even found the form whereby you can request that it be delivered to the British Library Reading Room. I'm thinking this might be worth the airfare.
I was looking at the British Library site for info about Wonderlands: A Festival of International Writing for Children (August 24-26, 2012) which does look properly wonderful even before you catch site of the storytelling tent. Writers appearing include Shaun Tan, Julia Donaldson, Emily Gravett, Anthony Brown and David Almond. Line-up and full details here.
