Scouts partner with Walker Books to launch Scouts Book Club

25 June 2021 Share

Bringing the joy of books and reading to over 220,000 Cub Scouts and Scouts

Scouts and Walker Books have joined forces to launch the first ever Scouts Book Club.

Over the next year, they will be showcasing new title releases from Walker Books alongside other exciting activities, including:

  • Author video readings that bring each story to life
  • Free sample chapter downloads of each title, available to all Scouts
  • Fun activities related to each story
  • A special Fun Badge to wear with pride and show you have taken part

You can earn your Walker Books Fun Badge by reading any of the stories chosen in the Scouts Book Club, and all selected titles will also be available through Scout Stores for purchase at a discount (coming soon).

M. G. Leonard’s birdwatching crime caper, Twitch, will be kicking things off as the June/July pick and the Book Club will go on to feature a further six key Walker middle-grade releases throughout 2021 and 2022, with Football School: Terrific Teams in August/September and Shadowghast: An Eerie-on-Sea Mystery in October/November.
