Over 4,000 children from across the county have signed up for Staffordshire libraries Summer Reading Challenge.
Activities have been running across the county’s libraries with this year’s theme ‘Mischief Makers’, inspired by the much-loved children’s title Beano, which is celebrating its 80th anniversary.
The scheme is asking four to 11-year-olds to borrow and read any six library books over the summer holidays. Children are exploring a map of Beanotown to find a hidden treasure chest full of pranks and become ultimate mischief makers.
As children read their books, they receive special stickers, some with mysterious smells. By adding these stickers to their map, young readers will help Dennis, Gnasher and friends solve clues and discover the treasure, having lots of fun and adventures along the way.
People can find out more at their local library or by visiting the Staffordshire County Council website.
