Reading Challenge artwork 2017
Tuesday 30 January 2018 to Saturday 10 February 2018

Reading Challenge is organised by the British Council Library, Colombo 03. Every year, thousands of children around the world take part in the Reading Challenge.  It’s a programme designed to encourage children to start reading for pleasure and experience the different worlds hidden behind every book.

The children are presented a different theme every year. The theme for this year’s Reading Challenge is ‘Animal Agents’.

‘Animal Agents’ introduces readers to a variety of clever animals named Furry, Scaly and Slippery, specially trained to use their skills and natural instincts to unravel mysteries. Animal Agents is illustrated by the UK's best-selling children's illustrator Tony Ross (creator of the Little Princess books, illustrator of the Horrid Henry series by Francesca Simon, and of books by David Walliams and Claire Balding).
