Animal Agents Summer Reading Challenge 2017

You can sign up now for 'Animal Agents' this year's national Summer Reading Challenge produced by The Reading Agency and delivered by libraries. We're supporting the challenge, aided by sponsorship from Old Mutual International. Children between the ages of four and 11 can take part – it's free, and you can join at any time throughout the summer.


Animal Agents have been brought to life by Tony Ross, who illustrates books for best-selling author David Walliams, and the Horrid Henry series. This particular detective agency is staffed by all kinds of clever animals who need eagle-eyed kids to help them by reading books and finding clues to solve some strange mysteries happening in the library.


Children receive an Animal Agents folder, and collect stickers to help them crack the case with every two books they read. Thanks to the generous support from our sponsors Old Mutual International, children also collect goodies along the way such as Animal Agents key rings, book bags and a medal for completing the challenge. All the children who complete the challenge will be entered into a prize draw.

Our sponsors have kindly provided fantastic prizes for all the fun competitions too! Watch out for exciting activities throughout the summer holidays – solve a Cluedo style mystery in the library, design a wanted poster, or join a summer holiday event!
