A SCHOOLGIRL whose tales of animal adventure impressed Oxford judges can now treasure a hard copy of her work.

Eleanor Thresh, six, made her literary debut earlier this year when she won a competition run by Oxford University Press.

Pupils across the country were challenged to write their own story based on Oxford Reading Tree's popular book series Biff, Chip and Kipper.

Eleanor, who goes to Manor Prep school in Shippon, impressed in her age category with her entry The Baby Giraffe.

She has now received a professional print-out of her tale.
