Up Up and Away – quiz!

when you have read the book…



you can answer this question…

When Percy was small he had only one Forest Folk Fellowship badge. What did he get his commendation for?

I’ll send a signed bookplate and dedication, written by both Mum and I, to anyone who gets in touch with the right answer!

And for a bonus prize, what do you think the badges in the picture are for?

      Marvellous guesses! 100% right, naturally.
      The tie-breaker is an impromptu game of cake-catapulting and then you will be given honorary Forest Folk Fellowship membership.

      Hi Emma,
      Meg is 100% absolutely RIGHT! I love ‘helping do doctor things’.
