Found this quiz today and had a go: http://caboodle.nationalbooktokens.com/take-the-quiz-10-locations-in-childrens-books#.WH_jU_mLTIU

Thought CBB-ers would get high scores :)

10 of of 10. But I had at least 3 complete guesses and a couple of educated guesses!

I got eight. The American one I'd never heard of and guessed, and a couple of others were guesses too. But as Cestina says, they don't tell you the answers, so I don't know which ones I got wrong.

I got 10, but two were extremely educated guesses!

As for not finding the answers, I simply assumed that this was one of those quizzes which tells you straight away if your answer is correct or not. In other words, if you place your "tick" under an incorrect answer, I presume that frame would have flashed up red, and the correct answer would have been flagged. But I'm only guessing - I certainly didn't see any other link to an answer page.

No, I've just been back and done it again, giving deliberately wrong answers, just to check, and there's nothing to say whether it's right or wrong until you get to the end and find out the result.

10 out of 10 (smugly), although I have read a lot of children's books - it used to be my job! I knew the American one but it is the only Louis Sachar I have read. He also wrote the intriguingly titled "There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom".

I managed 7, but since I guessed 3 I think they must have been the wrong answers.

I got 9 - not sure which was wrong though, as it just showed a tick against my answer without any colour change when I was answering, and there were 2 I wasn't absolutely certain of...

ETA went back and changed one of them - which gave me 8 out of 10, so did it again changing the other one instead and got all 10! [Roald Dahl never my strong subject!]
