Grace Drake (six) had read and reviewed 50 books.

Six-year-old Grace Drake has completed the amazing achievement of reading and reviewing 50 books, with her favourites being Daisy Meadow’s Rainbow Magic Fairy series and her Magic Animal Friends books - particularly the rabbit stories as they remind Grace of her own rescue rabbit, Snowy.

As a well-earned reward, Grace was presented with her Gold certificate and a signed copy of Chris Riddell’s Goth Girl.
