Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0810848783, Paperback)What do Paddington Bear, Rupert Bear, and Winnie the Pooh have in common, besides their ursine roots? They lived in real places, as well as in the imaginations of countless generations. Those places still exist. And inveterate globetrotter Mark West has been to them all.
Children's Literature Tour of Great Britain provides detailed information on 49 important sites with a strong connection to children's literature. Each chapter begins with background information about the author (or, in the cases of King Arthur and Robin Hood, the character), in particular his or her writings for children. West offers tantalizing tidbits about birthplaces, memorials, landscapes, and gift shops, and concludes with complete visitor information for would-be literary pilgrims. Photographs, most of which were taken by West, should satisfy even the most demanding armchair traveler.
Many of the sites on West's Tour are geared to children. Some are clearly intended for adults. All will add depth and delight to your next excursion into the fantastic (and fascinating) world of British children's literature.
