After the record-breaking success of this year's Summer Reading Challenge, Cressida Cowell, bestselling author of the How To Train Your Dragon books, today launches our second Christmas Mini Challenge.
A new picture book brings together drawings and paintings by young readers in response to the effect of disasters in local communities. The book is the culmination of a UK-wide illustration competition launched by our Chatterbooks network of children's reading groups and disaster relief charity ShelterBox.
