A spokesman thanked the pupils and said: “There have been small rats, large rats, fat, thin and wonderfully misshapen rats, which have provided much entertainment to the competition committee. Your talent is much appreciated.”

All the rats made will eature in the Players’ Dick Whittington in early January. Some will be sewn onto the costumes.

The best rat makers won book tokens from the Little Owls bookshop and the five winners were Molly Drewett and Grace Liddle (P4); Ben Williams and Katrina Paley (P6) and Hannah Laidlaw (P7). Dick Whittington will be performed at the Linlithgow Academy Theatre on January 12, 13 and 14. For more information go to www.linlithgowplayers.org.uk
