Having journeyed through time stockpiling literature The Little TARDIS Library is arriving in London with an array of classic books to give away to children, and all for free.
As Doctor Who fans know, size can be deceiving. Though just over a metre tall its interior is packed full of literary gems which will transport children on a journey through the imaginations of some of our greatest authors. Inside you'll find endless shelves packed with all the classics from literary greats like Lewis Carroll, CS Lewis, Roald Dahl and Oscar Wilde as well as books by popular contemporary children's authors like Julia Donaldson and JK Rowling. Selections of work by Charles Dickens and Shakespeare will be available for younger readers looking for a challenge.
Little Free Library is a charity who provide children with access to books through easily transportable pop-up libraries. Director of the charity Nick Cheshire says "The TARDIS is an iconic and engaging piece of sci-fi art that will help engage children and young people to pick up a book and inspire a love of reading."
The TARDIS will be landing in Finsbury Park today 9 September at 5pm before time-warping its way to Heathmere Primary School in Wandsworth, Wood Street Plaza in Walthamstow and Victory Park in Stratford — with further locations yet to be disclosed.
