According to one report, more than 400,000 young people – two in every UK classroom – do not own a single book.

Marcus, who has also campaigned against child starvation, said: “I didn’t read properly until I was 17 and I don’t want to do that to others like me.

“When she struggled to put food on the table, there was very little money left for things like books.

“It’s important for children to be able to see a world that is much larger than what they see on their doorstep, and that can be achieved through books.”
