Join the Big Libraries Aloud Read-Along with Greg Rutherford!
Reading can turn you into a real-life superhero and to prove it, we've only gone and got a real-life superhero of our own to launch our awesome reading campaign - Olympic hero, Greg Rutherford!
World Book Day is nearly here and at this time of year we love to celebrate the awesome, amazing, transformational power of reading! It's true - reading can turn you into a real-life superhero and to prove it, we've only gone and got a real-life superhero of our own to launch our reading campaign.
Our real-life superhero is former athlete Greg Rutherford who won a gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics and he's here to launch Beano's Libraries Aloud campaign by giving us a reading of a very special edition of the world's longest-running (and most blamtastic) comic! (That's the Beano, obvs).
Anyway, Beano is creating a special edition comic for World Book Day (which goes on sale on 2nd March 2022) and this comic will feature the World’s Loudest Ever Comic Strip, designed for kids to read out loud with their family and friends - which in true Beano style contains over 35 crashes, bangs, wallops, thwacks and parps!
So if you can't wait to hear those bangs, wallops, thwacks and parps read out for real, check out the video here - and if you want to know more about Beano's Libraries Aloud campaign or just find out about all our awesome World Book Day stuff, check this out!
