This year, the Summer Reading Challenge has teamed up with The Beano to create a mischief-inspired challenge.
To help celebrate the much-loved comic’s 80th anniversary, ‘Mischief Makers’ will explore adventure, friendship, reading and fun.
Aimed at all Dorset children aged four to 12 the challenge is simple and free. It takes place at libraries across Dorset from 7 July until 8 September.
Children are invited to read or listen to six library books of their choice during the summer holidays. Collecting stickers as they go, young readers will follow clues to explore their colourful collector’s map of Bean0town – meeting Dennis, Gnasher and friends along the way.
There’s a medal and certificate for all youngsters who complete the challenge.
