Beano has launched a new book subscription service for children offering newly published books across a wide range of authors and genres.
The tailor-made programme, called Beano Booktopia, will include fiction and non-fiction books specifically chosen by Beano experts based on the individual child’s given interests and reading ability. The titles selected for the book club “combine spot-on humour, captivating stories, relatable characters and amazing visual storytelling,” said Beano.
The club offers four subscription plans - either, three, six, 12 or 24 months - started from £24.99, with the children asked to answer a few simple questions through the Booktopia quiz, before Beano hand-picks a book a month to match the child’s interests and reading ability.
Emma Scott, c.e.o. of Beano Studios, said: “Beano has been making kids laugh for over 80 years whilst all the while secretly helping them on the first crucial step on their reading journey. Thousands of parents tell us “Beano is the only thing my kids will read” and we’re constantly awed by the British creative icons who credit the Beano with getting them reading, writing, drawing and even standing up on stage! Beano Booktopia offers kids a monthly chance to immerse themselves independently in amazing stories with the Beano seal of approval to help launch a lifetime love of reading.”
