“Books – the best weapons in the world!” | Dr Who

There are many reasons to celebrate the Dr Who of the BBC TV science fiction series fame – although in the context of this blog I cannot recall what Rosemary Sutcliff thought of it. However, she thought very highly of books and of libraries, from whom she often accepted invitations to talk with young and old alike, writing as she did for “children aged 8 to 88”. Her research depended upon the many books she borrowed from the London Library. This challenging picture from a library was tweeted by the admirable, lively Seven Stories, Britain’s gallery and archive that celebrates the wonderful world of children’s literature.
