Nine of the special £1 books for World Book Day 2015 are now available to quiz on Accelerated Reader! The Irish edition by Kate McGann is also available. Full details of the books, Book Levels and Interest Levels of each of the books are below.
We regret that, due to the limited plot and repetition from previously published material, The Dinosaur That Pooped a Lot! has been deemed unsuitable for quizzing with Accelerated Reader.
