School pupils from across the county have been having fun delving into the world of literature for the annual Norfolk Children’s Book Festival.
They enjoyed a day packed full of workshops and talks by authors including Mark Walden, Helen Dennis and Sarah Mussi.
Cheryl Wood, head librarian at Norwich School, said: “The festival was about enthusing children about books and creating or expanding a love of reading.
“It was great to have so many schools from across Norfolk involved.”
Martha Shawyer, 12, from Sheringham High School, won second prize for her story Mirror Mirror and fellow Sheringham High pupil Harry Moorfoot, 12, came third for his untitled story which he described as an Indiana Jones-style tale with a twist.
