The celebrated writer and illustrator of much-loved children's book Charlie and Lola has gifted the House of Illustration with her own dolls' house, which she's been working on for the past 30 years.
You can find it in the South Gallery, the smaller gallery next to the main EH Shepard exhibition, of the House of Illustration until February, complete with Charlie and Lola figures and three floors of beautiful interiors.
This is the first time the completed dolls’ house will be shown to the public, alongside original sets made for her acclaimed book The Princess and the Pea, which is illustrated with 3D miniature scenes.
Fans should look out for the shelf Child has curated in the House of Illustration shop, which shows a range of books that have inspired her and her work.
