JUST when you thought it was safe to go back into the public library-Jaws appears!

Museum experts came to Cubitt Town library on the Isle of Dogs with a collection of animal bones and teeth.

But it wasn't enough to scare the likes of six-year-old Hal Lonsdale (pictured) who turned up for the summer activity.

Kids were invited to examine the animal artefacts, part of the Grant Museum's 'see and touch' travelling roadshow laid on during the school holiday.

Hal, as bold as brass, picked up Jaws bravely in his hand-then showed a sample of his own gnashers.

Little Hal can't wait to go back to school next month and tell all his pals how he grappled with Jaws on Friday-first a snapping turtle, then a monkey.
