More than 50 children had a hoot in the library when they were visited by a local author and some feathery friends.

Stockholm-based children's author Catherine Coe - who grew up in Lowestoft - joined children at Lowestoft Library to share some of her Blossom Wood stories.

With her, came Shadow, a tawny owl from Fritton Owl Sanctuary to help transform the library into an enchanted woodland scene, much like those found in her collection of stories.

Children intently listened to the author reading from her series of books, as well as taking part in a wide variety of nature-themed activities.

Children made owl collages and took part in a nature quiz, as well as being able to get their Blossom Wood books signed by the author, who admitted returning to the library she spent time in as a girl was an emotional affair for her.

Di Humphrey, chairman of the Friends of Lowestoft Library, said the event was 'spectacular'.
