Written by J. R. R. Tolkien’s close friend, C. S. Lewis, The Chronicles of Narnia have sold about 120 million copies worldwide. Personally, they’ll always hold a special place in my fantasy literature-loving heart. If you haven’t read them, what are you waiting for? If you have, take a crack at these trivia questions!
1. What kind of creature is Mr. Tumnus?
2. Why can’t Susan return to Narnia in The Last Battle?
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? (No cheating!)
4. What does “further up and further in” mean? Who says it, and when?
BONUS: J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis were both members of a small authors group in England. What was it called?
Good luck, Splotters! Check the answers here.
