Artistic youngsters were creating colourful tales to liven up their school library this week.
Pupils at Church Cowley St James School worked with Oxford artist Neill Cameron to create a large-scale comic-book mural.
Ten panels will cover the walls of the Bartholomew Road school’s library.
Librarian Anita Bruce said she was delighted with the Year 4 and 5 pupils’ work, which tells the story of a magical library.
She said: “It has gone fantastically well, the children have really embraced it and got really involved.
“The creations are out of this world, quite literally. We have aliens, pirates, robots and monsters.”
Mr Cameron, artist in residence at the Story Museum, said: “It’s been great. I am impressed by their imagination.”
