An exhibition of children's book illustrations has opened in Cambridge.
Graduates from Anglia Ruskin University are showcasing their work after a successful exhibition in London. Some of the 60 students on the illustration course have already had their work published.
"For me I think children's book illustration is very exciting because it's the first place where our young people, our next generation, are going to be exposed to artwork.
We're hoping that we have in this exhibition the books that we'll be seeing on the school bookshelf or the library bookshop or the bedroom bookshop tomorrow."

The family of Bletchley Park codebreaker Alan Turing - who was played on the big screen by Benedict Cumberbatch in The Imitation Game - have been at Downing Street today to demand the Government pardons 49,000 other men persecuted for their homosexuality.
Turing, whose work cracking the German military codes was vital to the British war effort against Nazi Germany, was convicted in 1952 for gross indecency with a 19-year-old man. He was chemically castrated, and two years later died from cyanide poisoning in an apparent suicide.
He was given a posthumous royal pardon in 2013 and campaigners want the Government to pardon all the men convicted under the same outdated law.
Turing's great-nephew, Nevil Hunt, his great-niece, Rachel Barnes, and her son, Thomas, have handed over the petition, which was signed by almost half-a-million people.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has been warned by the Football Association but avoided further punishment following comments he made after the FA Cup draw with Cambridge.

In a list ranking more than 300 departments across the country according to their academic achievements, neurosurgeons at Cambridge University Hospitals - which includes Addenbrooke's - came out on top.
