Seven Stories, The National Centre for Children's Books has a brand new exhibition - but you're not able to see it in person just yet as the family-friendly attraction in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne is currently closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
However, you're invited to discover Where Stories Come From online with a brilliant range of resources, recommended books and short videos from the Ouseburn-based museum.
Some people say that there are only seven types of story in all the world but can this really be true? Where Stories Come From explores the idea that every story fits into one of seven basic story plots. Once Seven Stories reopens, visitors of all ages will be taken on a journey through these plots, each brought to life with unique items from Seven Stories’ superb collection including the typewriter used by Enid Blyton to create her hugely popular adventures, original illustrations from The Queen's Knickers by Nicholas Allan as well as a notebook containing the first-ever draft of The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson.
