Prepare to enter to a land of adventure with tangling twists and turns along the way as the Blue Peter Book Club trail is now open to discover.

The special badge trail was launched alongside The Blue Peter Book Club Live event featuring Blue Peter and CBeebies presenters as well as Henry the Blue Peter Dog on 18 May.

It welcomed packed story times sessions and creative arts workshops at Manchester Central Library for all the family to enjoy.

Now, the free trail invites families to wander around the city in hunt for a special grand prize and to spread the joy of reading.

It challenges children to discover special Blue Peter badges on display in 12 different cultural venues across Manchester including a bonus badge in the Blue Peter Gardens in Salford.  

Hunters on the trail can access a trail map which will help guide them to various locations where each badge will be decorated to celebrate one of the 12 books specially selected books from the Blue Peter Book Club.

Each badge also has a letter on it - find all 13 badges and use the letters to create three special names and young booklovers could be in with a chance of winning a spectacular prize, as Manchester Libraries will be giving an entire set of the 12 Blue Peter Book Club books to one lucky winner.

Children will also be able to discover the Blue Peter Book Club booklist in unexpected settings as part of a series of "Book Hunt" events in Manchester parks and open spaces over the summer. 

More information about the hunt can be found on the Blue Peter Book Club Badge trail.

The trail runs from now until 31 August.

Councillor John Hacking, Executive Member for Skills Employment and Leisure, said: "With schools closed and half term now upon us, it's the perfect time for families to get out and about across the city visiting our amazing libraries and taking part in this special book hunt trail.

"It's also the ideal opportunity to discover even more about Blue Peter and a whole bookshelf full of fascinating books and is the perfect way to encourage a love of reading while discovering different corners of the city."
