One of Britain’s best-loved children’s authors will be visiting the V&A Museum of Childhood to launch a new exhibition.

Jacqueline Wilson will be signing books on Saturday, April 5 to celebrate the opening of the Daydreams and Diaries exhibition, which contains extracts and illustrations from some of her books as well as childhood memorabilia.

The signing will take place between 11:30am and 1pm and is limited to one book per person.

She will be joined at the Cambridge Heath Road museum by Nick Sharratt, who provides the illustrations for her books and will be demonstrating his technique to children in two workshops.

Four to eight year olds must be accompanied at the free 2pm session, while eight to 14 year olds can be left at the 3pm session, which costs £5, but parents are required to complete a consent form.
