British Council Pune launches Reading Challenge 2016- The Big Friendly Read for children on 14 November 2016.

The Big Friendly Read will feature some of Roald Dahld's best-loved characters and the amazing artwork of his principal illustrator, Sir Quentin Blake.

The Big Friendly Read will encourage reading on a giant scale and highlight six key themes - invention, adventure, mischief, word play, child champions and friendship - that are explored in Roald Dahld's most famous books. Children will be encouraged to expand their own reading by exploring similar themes, fantastic facts, characters and stories across the best contemporary children's writing.
