An avid book fan has celebrated reading 100 in just four months.

Literature lover Arlo completed the challenge at Ottery Library as part of the facility's BookTrack initiative, which encourages young people to read 100 books.

A library spokesperson said the youngster was delighted with his achievement.

"Arlo said he was "really, really, really excited" to visit the library to collect his special 100 badge and certificate," they said.

"And he couldn't wait to sign up to our new reading challenge, The Secret Book Quest, signing up to this on the same day as completing BookTrack."

And the seven-year-old's favourite read out of the 100? King Flashypants, by Andy Riley.
