A KIND OF MAGIC: Adam Newbound the Word Wizard entertains the kids at Cleckheaton Library.

CHILDREN in Cleckheaton were amazed when a wordy wizard paid a visit.

Andrew Newbound, a children’s author otherwise known as the Word Wizard joined Cleckheaton Library for a fun-filled afternoon of Library Olympics.

The day was full of different word related challenges and activities that the children completed in teams.

Kathryn Parry, from the library, said: “The children loved the Library Olympics, it was amazing to see them co-operating together – it was actually like watching an Olympic team.

“The children found it fun and challenging and were all given a chocolate medal for taking part.”

The library runs children’s events throughout the summer holidays. Call 01274 335170.
