6. Gilbert’s Rest

Gilbertstone Primary School

BookBench inspired by our children’s favourite literary characters.

The children spent time thinking about what makes a book special. It is the characters, they decided, that bring a book to life. Their favourite characters ranged from The Cat in the Hat to Harry Potter. The Gilbertstone BookBench features many of these much-loved characters. Gilbert the School Owl even managed to find a place to hide!

Venue: Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery
