The fast-food chain launched its Happy Readers scheme in 2013, which aims to increase book ownership amongst children and support families reading together.


To date, 70 million books have been distributed since the scheme began.

Ann-Janine Murtagh, Executive Publisher at HarperCollins Children’s Books said: “As part of HarperCollins ongoing commitment to literacy it is wonderful to be reaching an even bigger audience of new readers with these special Happy Reader editions of David’s bestselling series.

“David’s stories are perfect for shared family entertainment and we very much hope this will demonstrate the pleasure and fun that reading can bring.”
