Congratulations go to Abbey Gate College Year 7 pupil Elinor Barriga whose story The Gingerbread Men has been chosen from thousands of entries to be published in a compilation book called A Twist in The Tale – North West Tales .

Elinor was chosen after submitting her entry via the college in the Young Writers A Twist in The Tale mini-saga competition.

Work for publication was selected based on imagination, perception, expression and creative use of language.

Copies of the book will be sent to the British Library, plus libraries across the UK and the Republic of Ireland.
