A brother and sister in Ottery have both completed their challenge to read 100 books, just eight months after starting.
Rex Walker, seven, and his six-year-old sister Mitzi have been undertaking the Booktrack challenge through Ottery St Mary library.
Mitzi began with a Beginner Reader book, The Greedy Dog by Alex Frith, and finished with Life Cycles by Sian Smith, which complemented her home schoolwork on natural science. She has enjoyed reading out loud to her family, her toys and her cats.
Rex started his Booktrack journey with the non-fiction Bugs and completed it with another non-fiction book called What Grows Up In The Snow by Theresa Longnecker. He also read plenty of fiction.
On completing BookTrack Mitzi asked whether she could do it again, because she had loved it so much.
