The 300 year history of children’s literature is absolutely fascinating. We take a journey from early moral and religious primers to the recent publishing sensations and explosion of artistic creativity in the world of the contemporary picture book. We will examine alphabet and improving stories, 19th century fantasies and family fairy tales and end with the plethora of provoking and spellbinding stories available today. On the way we explore the development of the genre and look at some of the colourful and original examples, and the astonishing originality of the artists involved, which were milestones along the way.
