Trivia: Andrew Clements’ School Stories

Posted by at 2:24 pm in Reads, Trivia | Permalink

Andrew Clements book fan for School Stories Trivia including The School Story, Frindle, Lunch Money, Lost and Found, and Room One: A Mystery of Two Well, there’s no denying it. Now that Labor Day has come and gone, I must acknowledge that summer truly is over. *weep* *sob* [insert dramatic nose-blowing here]

But going back to school isn’t all bad! As Morgan mentioned in her recent blog entry (Cool Books About Back-to-School), there’s always a wonderful sense of hope and expectation during the first few days of school. Anything is possible, and the year is as full of promise as the cafeteria garbage can will be full of tuna surprise by the end of lunch period.

In honor of the new school year, I’ve devised a trivia challenge that highlights books known as “school stories” in the publishing world. And they’re all by one author! I guess it’s because he used to be a teacher, but Andrew Clements pretty much owns the “school stories” category. He’s written over a dozen novels, almost all of which focus on the drama that happens during the hours that your parents think you’re just sitting quietly and taking notes (HA!).

So, here’s my challenge to you: can you match these Andrew Clements book descriptions to the right titles? (I was going to include the covers, but then I realized that would make things way too easy on you — now you’ll just have to rely on Google! Just kidding — no cheating!)

The Books:

1. Room One: A Mystery or Two
2. Lunch Money
3. Frindle
4. Lost and Found
5. The School Story

The Descriptions:

A. In this student vs. teacher showdown, Nick and Mrs. Granger face off when Nick invents a new word for “pen.”

B. Natalie and her best friend, Zoe, set out to get Natalie’s short novel published.

C. When Greg decides to draw comic books and sell them to his classmates, they’re a hit! But not everyone agrees…

D. One day, Ted notices a face at the window of a supposedly abandoned house. What’s up with that?!

E. Ray and Jay are twins in a new town, and happy to have each other to rely on. But soon they discover that the school only has records for one of them! Can you say, “Double Trouble”?

Alright, if you can stop crying about the end of summer long enough, leave a comment with your guesses!
