As you know Adventure Island readers are an amazing super-talented and fabulous bunch. You can marvel at their artistic and creative writing skills on the Art Gallery and Story Showcase.
But but did you know that they are also mega-brainy experts on children's literature as well?
Well you do now.
Meet Amy Smith from Lanarkshire. Amy is a very special girl and she is a massively keen reader. In fact she's such an expert on children's fiction that she was part of the winning team in the North Lanarkshire Primary Reading Quiz AND she was a reviewer for Edinburgh International Book Festival this year. Amy often gets in touch to let me know how she is getting on and what she's reading and it's always such a pleasure to hear from her. Here is a lovely photo of Amy with a lamb she named herself (she chose the name Ares).
Not content with acing quizzes, Amy has set one to share with us all. So, if you think you know your way round Adventure Island, have a try at this quiz and see how many you get right.
Thank you, Amy, for a fantastic quiz!
