It's time for the Summer Reading Challenge!

Yes folks, it's nearly time for this year's Summer Reading Challenge to begin!  Yip Yip!

This year's theme is Mythical Maze, illustrated by the hugely talented and ever-so-lovely Sarah MacIntyre!

I'll be launching the Sheffield Challenge soon, so keep an eye out here for where and when you can join the fun.

So what is the Summer Reading Challenge?  It's a scheme run by The Reading Agency in local libraries to help get children reading over the summer holidays.  All you have to do is read six books and you get loads of goodies like stickers and posters and other cool stuff, all FREE!  

There's a brilliant website where you can log your achievements, watch video messages by authors (hopefully soon including me!), and join in book chat.  Go here to create a profile and find out more.

And lots of libraries are running events too, so get down to your local library and sign up for the challenge. Eeek!
