A tour through a child's war at Imperial War Museum

11 February 2011 Last updated at 15:15 GMT

A new exhibition, just opened at the Imperial War Museum in London, is allowing children to enter the imaginary worlds of five classic children's war stories.

Once Upon a Wartime has created life-size models of scenes that appear in books ranging from War Horse, set in World War One, to the south London based tale of Little Soldier.

The BBC World Service was given a tour of the exhibition by some very knowledgeable pupils from a local primary school, and museum researcher Hazel Brown.
