An avid young reader has successfully read 100 books - earning her Booktrack Gold award.
Kaitlin Trott, who is 10-years-old and lives in Dunkeswell, completed her impressive challenge in 18 months - reading a variety of authors in that time.
Linda Isaacson, supervisor at Honiton Library, said: “She started off with Esiotrot by Roald Dahl as her first book and read a lot of the fairy books by Daisy Meadows.
“She then read all of the David Walliams books as well as more Roald Dahl titles along the way.
“Animal stories were a great favourite and we are sure she’ll carry on reading more of them now she has finished her Booktrack.”
