The Silly Squad is a team of animal friends who love to go on adventures and get stuck in to all different kinds of funny books. This year, the challenge features extra special characters designed by the award-winning author and illustrator Laura Ellen Anderson, who you’ll know from amazing reads like Amelia Fang and Evil Emperor Penguin.

You can join the Silly Squad on a new adventure by setting your own personal reading challenge to complete this summer. The new website will help you keep track of your books, reviews and the rewards you unlock along the way.

As always, there'll be loads of brilliant book suggestions to get you started, and tips on how you can keep reading even while schools and libraries are closed.

There'll also be heaps of super silly activities, quizzes, videos, games and more to keep you entertained at home!
