HERE’S one more story youngsters can now enjoy at Cowley St James Primary School’s library.

Pupils at the Bartholomew Road school collaborated with comic book artist Neill Cameron for a 20-metre life-sized comic to brighten up the outside of their library.

Their efforts tell the story of a magic library and incorporates fantastical animals and loads of imagination.

Mr Cameron, artist in residence at the city’s Story Museum, said he was thrilled with the efforts of the youngsters from Year 4 and 5.

He said: “It looks fantastic, I was really pleased with it. I pictured how it would look, it was hard work.

“They did an amazing job, it was nice going in and seeing them.”
