World Book Day 2014
By Ruth Atkinson
Eight of the 2014 World Book Day books are available for quizzing with Accelerated Reader. Additionally, the Irish edition by Mary Arrigan is also available. We regret that two of the books, Fun with the Worst Witch and Little Book Day Parade have been deemed non-quizzable.
