Another Successful Children's Book Quiz

Tuesday 28 June 2016

Another very successful Year 5 and 6 Children's Book Quiz was held last week at Motueka, Richmond and Takaka Libraries.

Teams of very keen children took part in a morning of fun, dressing up and answering tricky questions.

Quiz questions were based on the books The ghosts of Tarawera by Sue Copsey and How I alienated my Grandma by Suzanne Main. Another round focused on Potions and Concoctions in four Roald Dahl's books and lastly there was a general knowledge round.

"It was a very tight race this year", says Childrens and Young Adult Librarian Lucy Brunwin. "One of our highest scoring quizzes to date with a number of teams scoring almost perfect rounds."

Motueka Library quizzers were also treated to a Skype session with author Sue Copsey who talked about her books,writing and gave some great advice to young writers.  Hands went shooting up when the opportunity came to ask Sue questions like "Have you ever seen a real ghost?"
