Children's Literature

The late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries became known as the 'Golden Age of Children's Literature' as this period included the publication of many books acknowledged today as classics including; Lewis Carroll's 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland', Beatrix Potter's 'Tale of of Peter Rabbit' and J R R Tolkien's 'The Lord of the Rings'.

Some of our most famous pieces of literature and subsequent adaptations into films have their roots in children's literature; Winnie the Pooh, Narnia, Peter Pan, and Roald Dahl's 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' to mention a few. The stories that are read in childhood often form a deep connection and help to explore some of the most complex subjects in life.

Stamps celebrating these fantastic tales will always be popular with children, inspiring young collectors and creating a wonderful sense of nostalgia for the young at heart.
