Trivia Answer: Chronicles of Narnia

Posted by at 1:00 pm in Trivia | Permalink

Narnia_130Now that's what I call a team effort. Congrats to all who wrote in with answers to the Narnia trivia questions! I'm going to post the best answers I got for all four:

1. What kind of creature is Mr. Tumnus?
"A faun." – Aliyah

2. Why can't Susan return to Narnia in The Last Battle?
"Susan can't return because she doesn't believe in it anymore." – Aly

3. The seven Narnia books were not published in chronological order, meaning that the events in Book 1 are not the beginning of the story. Can you arrange the books in chronological order?
"#1-Magician's Nephew.
#2-The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe
#3- Horse and His Boy
#4- Prince Caspian
#5- Voyage of the Dawn Treader
#6- The Silver Chair
#7- The Last Battle"

4. What does "further up and further in" mean? Who says it, and when?
"When the 3 Pevensie children (Peter, Lucy, and Edmund), Eustace, Jill,
Polly, and Digory all arrive at the TRUE NARNIA (Book: The Last Battle),
Aslan roars over his shoulder, 'Come futher in! Come further up!' which
led everyone to say 'Further up and further in.'" – Mary P (+ shout-out to LibrarianVei, who had a great little analysis of this moment)

BONUS: J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis were both members of a small authors group in England. What was it called?
"The Inklings." – Aliyah

Congratulations again, everyone! Internet high-five!
