Stories about animals are sometimes far more appealing than those about humans, though many of the most famous ones – Ted Hughes's 'Crow', Aesop's Fables – are really about the way we interact. This exhibition looks at the history of animals in storytelling, from ancient cave paintings to cat memes. A family trail and children's reading area will keep younger visitors busy.
