Six-year-old Poppy Richards and Evie Salmon, ten, visited Honiton Library, where they was presented with their certificates.

Linda said: “Animal stories are a favourite of Poppy’s, and she is particularly fond of dogs. She is also the 165th child from Honiton Library to receive a free admission ticket from Pecorama as part of her finishing pack.

“Evie is a very avid reader and her reading has improved a lot since she started the challenge.

“She has read series of books for the challenge, including the Emily Windsnap series and How to Train Your Dragon.

“It is not a test or a race though – children can take as long as they want to read and tell us about the 100 books read in the challenge.”

Any child can take part in the Booktrack scheme – pop into the library for more details.
