Pupils flocked to a 'hidden' school library eager to plunder the newly-stocked shelves for their favourite stories.
Helped by a special guest - the mayor of Great Yarmouth Kerry Robinson-Payne - the wraps were finally off at St Mary and St Peter Catholic Primary School in Gorleston.
For the children it meant peeping through hazard tape and blacked-out windows to get their first glimpse of the new book area, created to promote a buzz around reading and containing all the drama and suspense of a good story.
English lead Sam Brackenbury said there were lots of audible gasps when the fruits of their library-loving labours were revealed on Tuesday.
The newly created space was a vast improvement on the previous area which was too small with a smaller selection of books.
