Young Dunnikier Primary pupil Daanyaal Ahmed received a welcome surprise this week as he was named as Fife’s Superstar Reader for 2016.

Last year every primary four pupil in Fife was invited to join the library and was given a ‘Superstar Reader Card’, thanks to funding from the Scottish Government. Since then, Fife Libraries has been searching to find a reader who could inspire others.

And this year’s winner was Daanyaal, who is a regular visitor to the library at Kirkcaldy Galleries.

Since June 1 last year he has read 123 books.

This week he was presented with a new bike, thanks to Halfords, and Sir Chris Hoy’s height in books – that’s around 6ft 5in worth. Fife Cultural Trust would like to thank Scotia and Chameleon books in Kilsyth for sponsoring the prize.
