Teams of students (all between the ages of 10 and 13) are challenged with questions about children’s literature (e.g., authors, titles, and characters) in a fun competition.  See the official international website here

Quizzes are held in Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Indonesia, New Zealand, Nigeria, Singapore, South Africa, Thailand, United Kingdom and USA.  The winners from each country then meet to compete in a World Final.
