AROUND 50 schoolchildren from Trinity and Stirches are set to get up close and personal with children’s laureate Julia Donaldson.

The renowed picture book author, pictured, who is best known for writing The Gruffalo, will be bringing some of her best-selling stories to life during next month’s Scottish
Friendly Children’s Book Tour of libraries across the UK, and will arrive in Hawick on September 19.

A local library spokesperson said: “We are all very excited to be part of this tour, and I’m sure the children are just as excited to be performing short plays for Julia based on their favourite books.”
