Isla, aged 10, has spoken of her excitement at receiving the gold Booktrack award from Budleigh’s deputy mayor Tom Wright at Budleigh Library.

An Otterton youngster has been recognised for her passion for reading.

Isla King, aged 10, read 100 books in a 12 month period and discussed them with staff at Budleigh Salterton Library, Station Road.

As a reward for her dedication to reading, she was presented with her booktrack gold badge and certificate by Budleigh Salterton deputy mayor Tom Wright.

The booktrack scheme is an initiative to encourage youngsters to read, rewarding them for reading and discussing a set number of books.

Youngsters get given awards for hitting targets, including a gold award for reading 100 books.

Budleigh Salterton Library first assistant Chris Burgess said Isla, who is home schooled was ‘so enthusiastic and really excited’ to finish the scheme and receive her gold badge.
