The book collection for this year’s Summer Reading Challenge has been announced, and we’re absolutely thrilled to see that four Nosy Crow titles are on the list!
The Summer Reading Challenge encourages children aged 4 to 11 to read six books during the long summer holiday, to keep up their reading skills and confidence.
Children receive special rewards each time they finish a book and there’s a certificate for everyone who completes the Challenge. The Summer Reading Challenge is open to all primary school aged children and is designed for all reading abilities. Schools work with local libraries and give out information to encourage children to take part, and most libraries run Summer Reading Challenge linked early years activity for pre-schoolers.
There’s a different theme each year – this year’s theme is Animal Agents. The book collection comprises 70 must-have reads for children aged 4-11, with something to suit every young reader. There are two lists – one for younger children and one for older children – representing the best in contemporary children’s fiction, fact and puzzle books, poetry, picture books and graphic novels.
And we’re very pleased that four Nosy Crow titles are included in this year’s book collection!
Harvey the Hero, by Hrefna Bragadottir, and Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam: Up, Up and Away!, written by Tracey Corderoy and illustrated by Steven Lenton, are both included in this year’s younger collection (for children ages 4-7).
And A Piglet Called Truffle, written by Helen Peters and illustrated by Ellie Snowdon, and Ned the Nature Nut’s Nutty Nature Facts and Jokes, written by Andy Seed and illustrated by Sarah Horne, are both included in this year’s older collection (for children ages 8-11).

Congratulations Hrefna, Tracey, Steven, Helen, Hellie, Andy, and Sarah!
