Oh hey everybody, it’s library blog quiz time again: our first for Term 2!  This week we are starting to get excited about the wonderful picture books that are currently incubating inside the brains of our clever and creative Year 8 students, so we have created a special picture book-themed quiz for your problem-solving pleasure.  Good luck to one and all!

How to enter:  Fill in the form at the bottom of this post with your name, email address and the correct answers to all ten questions.  Entries which answer all questions correctly will go into the draw to win a book voucher from our literary friends at Readings book shop.  This competition will close at 10am on Friday May4th and winners will be announced on the blog later that day.  You must be a Uni High student to enter this competition.  Good luck!
