A pupil at Stukeley Meadows Primary School, in Huntingdon, has impressed a TV channel with his animation skills after being picked as a winner out of about 45,000 entries.
Thomas Coupland, now seven, of Stukeley Road, entered the national competition, called Draw-A-Toon, run by the children's television channel Cartoon Network, and was one of 12 winners.
As part of his prize, Thomas had his winning artwork blown up and put on the side of a van which visited Stukeley Meadows Primary School last week.
All of Thomas's schoolfriends were given a chance to see his winning artwork before the van took to the streets of Huntingdon.
