Angry Robot July Reading Challenge

This July Angry Robot is turning nine (NINE!!!) years old! Imagine.

To celebrate, we thought we’d do one of those reading challenges that everyone enjoys so much, with the aim that our favourite snaps from the Robot Army will win lots of fun book prizes!

Below you’ll find the challenge which, as we’re nine, we created by consulting our favourite nine year old. They came up with the suggestions and we maybe helped a little bit.

The rules are simple. Each day snap a photo along the lines of the day’s theme. Feel free to use as much artistic license
