Actually didn't score that highly, owing to the fact that several of the answers were along the lines of, "Oh, you know - thingy!"

Anne Booth said...

That was very good - and I am afraid I had to look at some of the answers!

Lynne Benton said...

...and I never knew Mallory Towers was set in Cornwall! Thanks for this, Sharon - you learn something new every day!

Penny Dolan said...

That's a very enjoyable quiz - with just the right sort of questions, as in I knew some of the answers. Especially when thingy would do.

I admit I only knew about six of those. When you say, "Which is oldest?" do you mean in terms of when the first book came out?

Sharon Tregenza said...

Hi all,
glad you enjoyed the quiz. Maybe I'll make it a monthly feature, then? Psst - I didn't know them all myself. :)

Sharon Tregenza said...

PS. Sue Bursztynski

Yes. And that will teach me to be more careful about how I word the questions.

Great quiz. Too ashamed to tell you my score....!

Did you take the Railway Children's surname from the film? They're never named in the book. (I searched it on Project Gutenberg. The only references to "Waterbury" are to Peter's watch, and it was a brand.)
