Secondary students at the British International School Shanghai, Puxi, saw a fantastic and successful Book Week that culminated with a Dress Up Day. Students and teachers alike arrived in school dressed up as their favorite book characters. The cast of “Alice in Wonderland”, “Winnie the Pooh” and the “Sleepover Club” were seen throughout the school.
One of the most interesting sections throughout World Book Week was a section promoting books that have been banned in countries around the world at one time or another. The section surprised many students and generated interesting questions about why, when and where these books had been banned.
