CHILDREN have written stories, illustrated them and bound them into their own books as part of World Book day.

Pupils from The Downs Malvern listened to stories before choosing their favourite one to re-write and illustrate.

They were helped by two English teachers from Malvern College, which is associated with the school, as well as an author of children's stories and poetry Lynne Hallett and Sophie Holroyd, who is skilled in the process of book binding.

The pupils enjoyed learning about making a book from start to finish.
