Special Sub-Topic: Dealing with Dragons
|What is the name of the kingdom that Cimorene runs away from?|
Linderwall. The book describes her kingdom pretty well and even comments that "the number five" was fashionable. Cimorene hated it.
|Who gave Cimorene the advice to seek out the dragons?|
a frog. A frog gave her directions to the dragons' cave and neglected to tell her that they were dragons (surprise!).
|What did Cimorene take with her when she decided to follow the advice she was given?|
five handkerchiefs. She had taken five handkerchiefs with her. She had wanted a bottle of water when she had walked a bit and was a little dusty.
|In the directions given to her what was the place that she was not supposed to stop at?|
the Golden Pavillion. A woman called out to her from inside the Pavillion. The voice was so pleasant and soothing that she took two steps towards the place before she remembered what the frog said.
|How did Cimorene become Kazul's princess?|
she volunteered. She volunteered because she did not want to marry Prince Therandil.
|Who was the first wizard that Cimorene met?|
Zemenar. Cimorene was going to set up a sign that she and Morwen had made to discourage the "pesky" knights. Zemenar made two pieces of the ledge she was climbing disappear so she could be rescued and owe him a favor. (It did not work)
|What was the dessert that Cimorene made for Kazul and her guests after she met the wizard?|
chocolate mousse. She asked Cimorene to make it because the place she was getting the main course from is not acceptable for desserts. (Unless you like sourcream and onion ice cream)
|How did King Tokoz die?|
poison. King Tokoz was poisoned by dragonsbane placed in his Turkish coffee. Kazul said that you could "steep an entire field of dragonsbane in Turkish coffee without changing the taste or texture".
|What kind of stopper did the jinn's bottle have?|
lead. Kazul told Cimorene to be careful with the ones with lead stoppers and Therandil opened one with a jinn in it.
|What did Cimorene wish for?|
powdered hen's teeth. Cimorene was trying to fire proof some of the princesses (herself in particular)against the dragon fire. Therandil wished to defeat a dragon and win his dragon's princess.
|What plant did Cimorene find the wizard Antorell picking in the hidden place?|
dragonsbane. Antorell was picking dragonsbane to kill the king of dragons, Tokoz.
|When Kazul got a whiff of the plant that got burned in Cimorene's hand, she started choking. What color was the bottle that she told Cimorene to get? What color was the plant?|
green, purple. When Kazul started to recover she said that if something does not kill a dragon outright that it's only a matter of time before they recover.
|Who found how to melt a wizard?|
Alianora. Alianora had mixed a bucket of soapy water with a little lemon juice to clean the floor when Antorell attacked them and she threw the bucket at him. He started melting. The rest is history.
|Who became the next king of the dragons?|
Kazul. When King Tokoz died the dragons all gathered at the Ford of Whispering Snakes to carry Colin's Stone one by one to the Vanishing Mountain. Kazul is the one who succeeded.
|What happens to a dragon when they stop acting like a dragon?|
they become a toad. Kazul said this just after a dragon got turned into a toad.
