Mischief Makers

Calling all Extreme Readers!

Do you love to read in weird and wonderful places?

Do you have any unusual reading buddies?

Do you set your own reading challenges or spend time creating the ultimate reading den?

We want to know!


The prize

We’ve teamed up with our friends at Beano to offer one lucky Mischief Maker a very special prize

A drawing of the winner doing their “extreme reading” by top Beano artist, Nigel Parkinson, plus a 15-issue subscription gift card to the Beano comic.

We also have 15-issue Beano comic subscription gift cards to give away to the 25 best runners-up.


Sounds great! How do I enter?

To be in with a chance of winning, simply send us a photo of you doing your “extreme reading”, with a short description of what’s going on. We want to see strange places, silly costumes and as many wacky ideas as possible!

Just remember to stay safe and get help from an adult if you need to – we want you to carry on making lots more mischief this summer!
Please make sure you have permission from your parent or guardian before you send us your entry.

Send your entries to summerreadingchallenge@readingagency.org.uk.
Make sure you put ‘Extreme Reading Competition’ in the subject line so we don’t miss it!

This competition closes on Friday 7 September 2018.

We’ll let the winners know by email and you’ll have 14 days to respond and claim your prize.

Good luck and happy reading!
