Books have the power to transport us to new worlds but, much like breakfasts, not every child has access to them at home.
We were delighted to continue our partnership with Macmillan Children’s Books this year, enabling them to distribute thousands of books from the Marcus Rashford Book Club to children in Magic Breakfast partner schools across the country.
Over the past 3 years, we have delivered 50,000 copies of ‘A Dinosaur Ate My Sister’ by Pooja Puri, 50,000 copies of ‘Silas and the Marvellous Misfits’ by Tom Percival, 100,000 copies of Alex Falase-Koya and Marcus Rashford’s ‘The Breakfast Club Adventures: The Beast Beyond the Fence’ and 50,000 copies of ‘The 13-Storey Treehouse’ by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton.
Marcus and the Breakfast Club Investigators are back! The next exciting book will be ‘The Breakfast Club Adventures: The Ghoul in the School’ by Marcus Rashford and Alex Falase-Koya.
Together, we can provide breakfasts that fuel and books that inspire to children across the country.

In the past, BBC Teach, the National Literacy Trust, and Macmillan’s Children’s Books have produced resources to accompany the books. Why not have a looks through and see if they inspire any activity around Marcus’ recommended reads.
