Sebastian Martin is the 2013 Breakfast of Champions winner representing the Wallingford Branch. Sebastian is 10 years old and attends St. Benedict. He likes Alex Rider books, The Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, the Percy Jackson series and the Kane Chronicles.
The Breakfast of Champions is an annual event at the end of the Summer reading Program. One winner is drawn from all the children at each branch who completed the program by reading 10 books. Additional entries into the contest are earned by reading more books. Each branch chooses a winner in a random drawing to attend this celebration.
