Scottish award-winning children's author Barry Hutchison visited Sunnyside Primary in Alloa last week to give pupils advice on creative writing, sign copies of his books and read from his latest novel. The invitation was issued because one of the P7 classes had been enthralled by the first two books in the author's Invisible Fiends horror series.
