AGENT Green the Dragon Whisperer came to Barry children's library to enchant visitors with her storytelling as part of World Book Day celebrations.

Telling a mix of traditional folk tales and personal accounts of her life as a dragon whisperer, guest Chloe of the midnight story tellers, entertained children from Holton Road and Gladstone Road primary schools.

Children's librarian Gillian Southby said: "It's all about giving the children an appreciation of storytelling, creative writing and an enjoyment of books."

Chloe - no surname - of the Midnight Story Tellers stopped at Barry library as part of a tour across the Vale.

"I'm here in Wales telling stories about dragons," she said. "Which is a bit like taking coal to Newcastle.

"What this is about is firing up the children's imaginations and giving them a love of story and a love of the spoken word.

"Once they see that this is a performance, my hope is that they will be inspired to improve their speaking skills and to use their imaginations."
