"Quiz Whiz" is designed to be used in three ways. Children can test themselves and each other with quick-fire quizzes; use the quizzes to gain straightforward question-and-answer information; or enjoy reading through the colourful, informative spreads and hunting for facts.Following on from the successful "Quiz Quest" and "Quiz Quest 2", "Quiz Whiz" is a version for younger readers, with 400 questions and answers on its information-rich pages. The text is geared perfectly for the age group, with smaller paragraphs, larger fonts and ten questions per spread. One picture dominates each spread to give focus and clarity to the subject.
