Silly Squad Book Collection

The Silly Squad Book Collection is full of seriously funny books!

Every book has been specially chosen by children and librarians for everybody taking part in the Summer Reading Challenge to enjoy.

Lots of these titles are also available for you to enjoy – for free! – through your local library service. Visit your local library’s website or app to browse their online catalogue. Your library may be offering a Click and Collect service, so you can pick your books up to enjoy at home. Keep an eye out for eBook and audio book versions too!

You can also pop into your local bookshop or support them on Hive.

You can find a handy guide to accessing books at home on our Find a Read page here
