Roedean Upper Junior School Kids Literacy Quiz Team review holiday reads


We're having a bit of fun this week, and what better way to do that, than with books? They make great gifts, particularly for children, in a country where we're trying to cultivate a much stronger reading culture. We invited some members of the Roedean Literary Quiz team in to review a few books for us. This group of girls is 12-years-old and they're widely-read, so much so that they compete against other schools in a yearly international quiz on books.  Penguin publishing house was kind enough to supply us with books for this review.
