A few weeks ago we took the kids to Green Drops and Moonsquirters, an exhibition of Lauren Child's work at the National Museum of Wales. Her most famous creation is Charlie & Lola and the interactive exhibition allowed kids and parents to discover the inside story of Charlie & Lola along with other characters Ruby Redfort and Clarice Bean.
I Will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato is personal fav in our house so it was great to see her Charlie & Lola food stories brought to life. The kids had fun playing in the Charlie & Lola kitchen but frankly the exhibition was more insightful for the parents who, through Child's notes and annotations, were able to learn how we developed her characters.
Green Drops and Moonsquirters is installed at Seven Stories in Newcastle, UK until September 2010.
