And the enthusiasm of youngsters at Elm Tree Primary Academy has been supported by Waterstones in Lowestoft – who have been working with the school on its huge new library stock.

A spokesman for the school in Ranworth Avenue said: 'When the store was keen to revamp one of their windows, they gave Elm Tree pupils the chance to compete, class against class, for a chance to design a display for it. Pupils worked hard to think of book themes that would be fun for passers-by to look at.'

In the end, Waterstones chose class 3P's effort – whose idea revolved around the classic tale 'Journey to the Center of the Earth.'

Their design features a prehistoric landscape, complete with ancient trees, vines, an origami Pterodactyl and a giant glittery volcano. The display is housed within Waterstones' side window, next to the Marina Theatre – and it has been visited by pupils and their families over the Easter break. It will be on display for a further few weeks before it becomes Dell Primary's turn to fill the window.
