West Dunbartonshire Libraries are celebrating 80 years of the much loved comic ‘Beano’ this summer with much mischief making.

Rumour has it that a treasure chest full of epic pranks has been hidden somewhere in Beanotown.  Dennis, Gnasher and their friends are on a quest to find it, and they need some of you Mischief Makers to join in and help them.

How the challenge works:

  • It’s FREE
  • Primary school age children can register at their local library
  • Receive your ‘map of mischief’ poster
  • Read a minimum of 6 books over the summer to complete the challenge
  • Collect sticker clues and other goodies along the way
  • Enter the code on your sticker sheet at to unlock additional content and reward badges
  • Every child completing the challenge will have their completion certificate and medal presented at school
  • Help your school win our Summer Reading Challenge Champions trophy. (for the school  with the highest completion rate, per capita)
