Summer Reading Challenge is here!

It was announced back at the beginning of the year but the Summer Reading Challenge has finally launched in England and Wales (Scotland started in June). The challenge is simple but needs a bit of stamina: read as many of these books as you can during the school summer holidays (and The Chocolate Factory Ghost is just one of them) …

The Beano is a sponsor of  the challenge – my favourite childhood read – so it’s great to see The CFG on the list.

You can find all the details at the SRC website where you can sign up and find out more about the books, check out the competitions and other activities. Some libraries are running their own events as part of the challenge so make sure you’re a regular visitor so that you don’t miss out.
