Children from Richardson Dees have been involved in a project with Wallsend Library.  They were asked to design a chair using inspiration from their favourite books.  Penelope Payne who has helped coordinate project has written to the children.  Below is her letter.

Dear  Richardon Dees Primary School,

I hope you had a wonderful christmas holiday and are now back at school reading lots of lovely books.

Wallsend Story Chair is almost ready and waiting for the grand unveiling in February. I hope you can wait till then to see it!  You can't?

Have a closer look at the picture.

Can you see some of the wonderful flowers that you made? 

I can also see some Gruffalo  AND some dragon spines. What else might be on the chair?

Best wishes,
Penny Payne
