BUDDING young writer Anthony Collins has won a brand new Kindle and £1,000 of books for his school by putting pen to paper.

The talented 10-year-old entered his short story, Dream or No Dream, to the Scottish Book Trust’s Big Read competition and came top in the nine to 12 years category.

Anthony, an Our Lady of the Missions primary pupil, said: “I was encouraged to enter by my twin brother Dominic and my younger sister Kathleen.

“I’d love to be an author one day. My favourite books are ones with a twist that you don’t see coming.”
