Kids’ Lit Quiz does what it says on the tin. It spans the globe and involves hundreds of schools in the UK alone. There are heats all over the country and they always include teams of authors and librarians as well as loads of pupil teams.

West Scotland (Cumbernauld) on 28 Oct:

East Scotland (Liberton, Edinburgh) on 29 Oct:

North East Scotland (Aberdeen) on 30 Oct:
