Tom Fletcher backs our campaign to get kids reading and wants to see band’s books McFly off the shelves – The Sun

POPSTAR turned author Tom Fletcher is backing our Books For Schools campaign to be a big hit.

The McFly frontman says: “The Sun’s campaign sounds fantastic.”

We have teamed up with publishers HarperCollins to give primary schools the chance to get their hands on more than 100 Collins Big Cat books — absolutely FREE.

There are more than two million books up for grabs and it is so easy for schools to get involved — just follow the steps below.

Once each school has registered then collected enough tokens we will send out a pack of books, including titles from Julia Donaldson and Michael


Each Sun box also contains a bonus book, There’s A Snake In My School, by David Walliams.

Dad-of-three Tom, 34, adds: “Learning to read is the foundation of our education and I understand it even more now as an author and as a father.

“Books are a focal point of our bedtime routine. Some of the most magical moments as a dad are sharing a book. “It’s a privilege to write books and know that in the future, people might still be sharing my books with their kids.”
