Mischief Makers, the Summer Reading Challenge 2018 launches in libraries across England and Wales on Saturday 14 July.
There's a whole programme of events and activities for families over the summer, so visit your local library to sign up and take part.
The Summer Reading Challenge invites 4-11 year olds to borrow and read any six library books over the summer.
Many libraries offer a mini-challenge for younger brothers and sisters too; check with your local library to find out more.
This year the Summer Reading Challenge theme is Mischief Makers, celebrating 80 years of the much-loved comic Beano.
Children will explore a map of Beanotown to find a hidden treasure chest full of pranks and become ultimate mischief makers!
As children read library books for the Summer Reading Challenge, they will receive special stickers, some with mysterious smells. By adding these stickers to their map, young readers will help Dennis, Gnasher and friends solve clues and discover the treasure, having lots of fun and adventures along the way.
To take part in the Summer Reading Challenge, all children need to do is sign up at their nearest library.
There's also the Mischief Makers website where children can chat, get reading recommendations from the Book Sorter, review their books and enter competitions.
Sue Wilkinson, CEO, The Reading Agency, said:
"At The Reading Agency, we believe that everything changes when we read and we know from our research how much fun families and children have when taking part in the Challenge. Mischief Makers offers intergenerational appeal and we hope this family friendly, accessible theme will inspire more children than ever to read over the holidays and make use of their local library throughout the summer and beyond."
In Scotland, where it's known as the Tesco Bank Summer Reading Challenge Scotland, the Challenge launched on Saturday 23 June.
Please note: launch dates may vary locally, so do contact your local library for more information on how the Challenge will run in your area. Each local authority is also responsible for deciding when the Challenge will end in their libraries, and which incentives are available to collect.
