If you’re ready for a special new reading challenge then you’ve come to the right place.

That’s right, our pal Cressida Cowell is challenging you all to read just three library books between the 12th December and 6th January!

Once you’ve borrowed any three books you like from the library, hidden away from the cold, made some cocoa, and got stuck into Fantastic Adventure No’ 1 all you have to do is create a profile for yourself on this very website: click the big blue Create My Profile button on the top of the home page.

OR, if you’ve already got a profile click My Profile and just log straight in.

And there you go, you’re through the golden gates!

As soon as you’re logged in you can tell us all what you’ve been reading by clicking Add a New Book Now. Once you’ve added all three of your Christmas Mini Challenge reads you’ll unlock a cool little badge for your profile and a special message from the big CC!

Good luck, and happy reading!
