"Bookworm" was a strip that first appeared in the 22nd April 1978 issue of Whoopee! and later moved to Whizzer and Chips. It was originally drawn by Sid Burgon; Barry Glennard handled it later on. ( And I was the author of the Bookworm scripts-ideas and text-Alison Fitt.)
The main character was a boy who was obsessed with reading as many books as possible.
