Locally based author and illustrator, Shoo Rayner, joined year 3 children from The Dell School in the library this morning to celebrate the Chepstow winner of the Summer Reading Game 2013. This year 232 Chepstow based children took part in the summer reading challenge to read six books during the holiday. Everyone who finished was put in a prize draw for a Kindle Fire. Lucky Sophie from The Dell was the winner. She joined Shoo with her classmates for a fantastic morning of scary stories and scarier drawings. Brilliant fun for everyone!
