A purr-fect prize for Samuel.
The nine-year-old Rokeby School pupil was the winner of a Midlands-wide competition to design a programme cover for Bedworth Civic Hall's first ever professional festive show "Christmas Cat and the Pudding Pirates".
Samuel, whose cover featured a huge Christmas pudding and characters from the show, was the toast of his classmates as he won his whole class free ice creams and programmes as they watched the show.
Civic Hall manager Peter Ireson said: "School parties were showing interest from all over the Midlands, so we decided to open up a competition for school children. The standard of entrants has been very high and it was a difficult decision to make."
