AN AWARD-winning children’s writer is set to pay a visit to a city school on Monday.

Jeanne Willis, author of much-loved children’s classics including the million-selling Dr Xargle series, Who’s in the Loo, Tadpole’s Promise and Big Bad Bun, is to visit Highbury Primary School in Cosham.

She will be talking to classes of children about her new series of children’s books, Downtown Dinosaurs.

School librarian Caroline Mason, who organised the visit, said: ‘With the help of our parents, we have recently refitted the library here at Highbury Primary School.

‘We’re looking forward to showing it off to Jeanne who is one of our favourite authors.

‘The children are really excited.’
