Von Doogan chosen for the Summer Reading Challenge!

Ahhhh YEAH! As announced HERE by DFB, my new Von Doogan book (along with Jamie Smart's awesome Bunny vs Monkey) has been chosen to be one of the Summer Reading Challenge books by the Reading Agency! The Summer reading challenge is an initiative run though libraries each year over the summer holidays which gets nearly a million children engaged in reading and discovering new books. To have Von Doogan be a part of that means a whole load of new readers will be able to enjoy the dangerous puzzles and challenges of the Golden Monkey adventure - which is basically AWESOME!

A huge thank you to the Reading Agency for their support in choosing the book to be a part of this summer's activities!
