Children aged from 4 to 18 from across the Bury Schools Partnership are being encouraged to enjoy a specially selected group of books during the summer holidays.

Reading Champion Philip Daws has been busy compiling a list of his favourite new and recent titles for young readers right across the age range.

He has come up with 24 titles to entertain and motivate young readers through the summer holidays.

Thanks to the generous support of both town Waterstone’s shops, each student from the Bury School Partnership’s 19 schools will receive a £1 discount on the price of any of the selected titles.

Asked about his favourite new releases, Mr Daws said: “They include Malorie Blackman’s new teenage sci-fi novel Chasing The Stars, a wonderful adventure story about a boy and a fox called Pax and a charming picture book The Bear And The Piano.”

All three of the titles are on his list.
