GLASGOW author Angela Proctor flew into Stirling Central Library recently to speak to school pupils as part of the Off the Page Festival.

She introduced her book series Thumble Tumble to the children of Allan’s and Riverside primary schools.

One of Angela’s main reasons for writing her books is to encourage children to become excited by all things literary through the fictional adventures of Thumble Tumble, a little witch from the Isle of Arran.

The writer has visited more than 100 schools to inspire the young minds to get involved in the adventures and start their own imaginations rolling.

During the visits to Stirling, having introduced them to a chapter of her book, Angela led the children in an Imagination Challenge where the children are tasked with creating their own spells and potions.

The creativity shown by the children was exceptional conjuring all sorts of fantastical words and ideas to help scare off Rhino, the Spike Back Giant who was threatening to eat Thumble Tumble.

The children devised the teleportation potion which showed fantastic imagination! 

Angela said: "I just love reading to the children and hearing where their minds take them through the imagination challenges.

"We all had great fun devising the Teleportation potion and doing our very best to make the spell come to life, I made it safely back to Glasgow so clearly it worked."
