An English teacher at Saint Cecilia’s Church of England School, delivered an inspirational talk at the local Southfields Library this May entitled ‘Proper books have pictures, too’. Miss Liew spoke about her love of books, particularly comics and picture books and how they inspired her to enjoy reading as a child.

The talk was followed by the announcement of the winner of the school’s Design a Picture Book competition, supported by Little, Brown Book Group.

There is currently an exhibition of the entries at Southfields Library and it goes on until Saturday 19th May 2018. The winner, Raphaela, in Year 7, commented: “It was a fun experience to make the book and I loved it!”. Second and third places went to Harriet in Year 9 and Ciara in Year 7.
