The V&A Museum of Childhood will be celebrating the work of Michael Morpurgo, one of Britain's best-loved authors.

A Lifetime in Stories will explore his career through the use of draft manuscripts, photographs, notebooks and correspondence, and look into the lives he created for some of his best known characters.

Also on display will be the life-size horse puppet that was used in the West End show War Horse, which was later made into a movie by Steven Spielberg, and some original artwork by some of Britain's greatest illustrators, including Sir Quentin Blake, Patrick Benson and Michael Foreman.
