"Quiz Quest" is a question and answer book with a difference! Each of the 50 rounds covers one subject - from amphibians and Aztecs to weather and winter sports. The 20 questions in each round are carefully graded at three levels to build confidence and stretch knowledge-hungry minds, ranging from the really easy to the seriously challenging. Then comes the fun part, finding out the answers. Readers can jump to the quick answer section at the back of the book, or find out more by turning the page and hunting for the answer on two sumptuously illustrated and fact-packed pages. Children can use "Quiz Quest" in many ways: as a question and answer book; as a quiz book with a difference - if they get stuck, readers can search for the answer in the full-colour illustration over the page; as a fun book to read, then test their knowledge; and, as a great-value information book about six core subject areas - perfectly designed to deliver bite-sized pieces of information.show more
