Primary school pupils from throughout the Tasman district dressed as their favourite book characters and put their thinking caps on for the annual Library Kids Book Quiz at Richmond, Motueka and Takaka. The Wakefield Wizards not only got the most answers right, they looked good doing it -- winning both the book quiz and the prize for best costumes at last Thurs- day's quiz for years 5 and 6 pupils in Richmond. Motupipi won the quiz in Takaka for the second consecutive year and Riwaka Girl Power held off 17 other teams to win the quiz in Motueka. Wakefield's Dylan Elwood, Con- nor O'Toole, Finn de Hamel and Ronan Thompson dressed as Wizards for the quiz, held as part of the NZ Post Festival. Teams of four pupils answered questions about books that were finalists in the NZ Post Festival. I think we won because we all read a lot of books,'' Ronan said. My mum doesn't let me watch much television so I probably read a bit more than the others.'' Wakefield edged out Mapua Books R Us by half a point with St Paul's Bosses third in Richmond. It was also a close call in Motu- eka where Riwaka's Girl Power beat the Upper Moutere School Millenium Team by just one point. But the Millenium Teens was best-dressed team, and Brooklyn School's Angus Mills won best- dressed individual for his Gang- sta Granny'' outfit. Librarian Mary Butler said it was good to see the glory being shared, because Upper Moutere had won the book quiz before. and Mapua School teams had also won twice before. Every team went home with a prize pack from Take Note, with snacks and spot prizes donated by State Cinema Motu- eka, Video Ezy, The Warehouse, Toad Hall and New World. St Peter Chanel's All Books came third, and were second in the best-dressed team compe- tition. Rudolf Steiner's Knitting Wits were third in the costume competition. Tasman district libraries chil- dren and young adults librarian Lucy Brunwin said teams received books for winning a round and for winning the overall quiz. Best- dressed teams received book vou- chers.
