A St Albans primary school has come third in a national World Book Day competition.
Mandeville Primary School was named a runner-up in a competition between schools to create their own ‘world of stories.’
Pupils were helped by parent and professional set designer Kate Bunce, and Marlborough GCSE student Tabitha Cooper to use the pages from books to create art of the Hungry Caterpillar.
Assistant head Cate Cooper said, “It is such an honour to have been awarded third prize for our entry to the World Book Day Award.
“Kate Bunce and her team are overjoyed – they worked incredibly hard and had so much fun crafting their display.”

Mrs Cooper said: “At Mandeville we believe reading for pleasure is essential to children’s development, and the addition of £1,000 of new books will make a big impact.”
