Daydreams and Diaries sounds like it could be the name of a new book by Jacqueline Wilson. And I suppose it is in a way. One she has been writing for sixty-eight years. Daydreams and Diaries is The Story of Jacqueline Wilson, but it isn't told by scribbling words on paper, but rather through the discovery of objects, illustrations, and recreations.
From the 5th April until the 2nd November, you can have free access to the life of one of Britain's best loved children's writers. All it takes is a visit to the Museum of childhood, where they will be showcasing some of her personal objects, such as original note books and illustrations from books such as The Story of Tracy Beaker. You'll also be able to sit on a chaise longue just like hers, and see a recreation of her childhood bedroom.
On the day of opening, you can even meet Jacqueline Wilson in person, as she will be doing a book signing between 11.30am - 1pm. That will be followed by an illustration demonstration at 2pm, and illustration workshop at 3pm. Tickets are £5 and should be booked in advance, as spaces are limited.
