By Chris Jarosh
Two books made popular by blockbuster film adaptations have just been quizzed for Accelerated Reader. The Woman in Black and the Perks of Being a Wallflower had been requested by teachers and librarians in increasing number since the films were released, as children watching the films have sought out the books. We have taken care to write the quizzes from content exclusive to the books, making sure that they cannot be passed simply by watching the films.
The Woman in Black, by Susan Hill, sees a young solicitor sent to attend to the paperwork of the late Alice Drablow. He finds himself in a spooky old house at the end of a causeway. He keeps seeing a mysterious woman in black – what is her terrible secret? A classic.
