A FAMOUS author and a bookshop owner visited a local school to promote reading.
Author Steve Cole and Lindley Children’s Book Shop owner Sonia Benster visted children aged between 7 and 11 at Dalton Junior and Infants School.
Two competitions were held before Steve talked to the children. The winners received a book of their choice.
Steve Cole talked about his books Astrosaurs, Cows in Action and Dr Who.
More than 100 books were sold to the pupils in school.
Virginia Randerson, of Kirklees Council Libraries Service, said: “The visit and the books were a good way of promoting reading and ideas for writing.”
