A London Children’s Lit Quiz September 19, 2013Posted by ccbooks in Nerd Line.
One thing that has never gotten old about London is the thrill I get looking at a street sign or a map and recognizing the name of a place connected to a book I’ve read. These are real places! It never fails to amaze me.
So here are eight places from various children’s books (except the last one, which isn’t a setting but is referenced in said book). Some are famous, some are obscure. Can you identify all eight books? If so, let me know in the comments. I’ll post the actual answers here in a week or so (yes, I’m acting as if someone besides my mother will actually attempt this silliness. Don’t destroy my illusions!) Have fun!
6. The Round Pond, in Kensington Gardens.
7. The Outer Circle of Regent’s Park.
8. The Mummy Room in the British Museum, Bloomsbury.
