A Literary Holiday

I love the UK. When I was in college I had the opportunity to study abroad in Oxford and London. The classes were fantastic, and I felt immediately at home in both cities. So this list of children’s literature landmarks in the UK has me ready to pack my bags.

There are fantastic suggestions for fans of Harry Potter (I’ve had my picture taken at Platform 9 3/4, of course), Peter Pan, The Secret Garden, and more. I’d also add checking out castles in Scotland for a dose of Susan Cooper’s The Boggart, or dash around Oxford like Lyra in The Golden Compass–but watch out for Gobblers.

    I would love to go to Prince Edward Island in Canada. Anne of Green Gables was one of my favorite books when I was younger. The UK is also on my places to see list, too. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis are two of my favorite authors ever. πŸ™‚
