Pottery workshop in Walmley library led by Jon Williams the Flying PotterThe Summer Reading Challenge organised by The Reading Agency is a brilliant way to get young readers to delve into the wonderful world of children’s literature.The scheme takes place every year during the summer holidays and young people sign up at their local library, then read six library books of their choice, collecting stickers and other rewards along the way – all for FREE.

The Challenge is always themed and this year ‘Creepy House’ provides the inspiration.

So it was I found myself at Walmley Library in Sutton Coldfield working with 40 youngsters and their parents making Creepy Clay sculpture. I think I managed to take a photo of everyone’s work?
