Danny Wallace

Danny Wallace, British film-maker, comedian, actor and author and creator of the wonderful Hamish series of books for children, loves Read for Good’s work. So much so, he created a series of videos for us to encourage schools, teachers, librarians and children (and frankly anyone who fancies it) to take part in Readathon!

“Readathon is a fantastic initiative. Because it’s really just encouraging kids to start in whatever way excites them, in whatever way they choose, So long as they are reading. And there is the extra motivating factor that they are helping other kids. Kids slightly less lucky than them. Kids in hospital who need these brand new books. So it’s really win win for everybody. So I would get involved, and then you could come and teach me to read.”
