Animal Agents, Summer Reading Challenge 2017

The Summer Reading Challenge takes place every year during the summer holidays. You can sign up at your local library, then read six library books of your choice to complete the Challenge. There are exclusive rewards to collect along the way, and it’s FREE to take part!

This year's free challenge runs from Saturday 15 July 2017 to Saturday 9 September 2017.

It features an awesome team of animal detectives created by Tony Ross, the award-winning illustrator of Horrid Henry and many of David Walliams' best-loved books.

With the Animal Agents help, children will uncover the truth behind a strange library mystery and catch a crafty crook.

With 20,000 Hertfordshire children taking part in last year's Summer Reading Challenge, you won't want to miss out!

Please promote ĎAnimal Agentsí in your parents' newsletter this term. Further information on the Summer Reading Challenge in Hertfordshire and a link to Animal Agents website can be found at
