Satirical Cartoon: Gove’s New Booklist at the Library of Birmingham

A schoolgirl is stretching to reach the books in the Library of Birmingham. She is standing in front of a shelf marked “Great American Novels”. The shelves start too high up the walls, well above her head.

In the foreground some men in suits are talking. One holds a newspaper with the headline “Gove’s New Booklist”. He is saying “looks like we can cancel the step-ladders, then”.
