Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Flopsymopsy has found a series of books by Dick Bruna which might be suitable. These stories feature a white rabbit with which name?

Answer: Miffy

Miffy was created by Dick Bruna in 1955 as a story told to his young son, and is called Nijntje in Dutch, the author's native language. The stories are short and are written to help children with situations they are likely to face in their real lives, such as the birth of a sibling or starting school. The character has also appeared in cartoon form on television as 'Miffy and Friends'.

Flopsymopsy thinks she is a bit too old to fit in these books, so her search goes on.
2. Flopsymopsy has her hopes raised when she comes across a character called Peter Cottontail. Which American author created him?

Answer: Thornton Burgess

Peter Cottontail became well known due to the song 'Here Comes Peter Cottontail; hopping down the bunny trail; hippity hoppin'; Easter's on its way'. The song was popularised by Gene Autry in the 1950s and the character became identified with the Easter rabbit as a result, although he had originally appeared in the 1910 book 'Old Mother West Wind'. Lofting was English and created Dr. Dolittle, and Richard Scarry wrote the 'Busytown' series. Charles Finger wrote 'Tales from Silverlands'.

Flopsymopsy thinks she has better things to do with her time than hand out Easter eggs, which she'd rather eat herself, so goes on looking.
3. Flopsymopsy thinks she has found a long lost relative in the 'Arthur' books written by Marc Brown. His name is Wilbur Rabbit, but who is his superhero alter ego?

Answer: Bionic Bunny

Bionic Bunny is a fictional character within the 'Arthur' stories who appears on posters on the wall in Arthur's bedroom and features on some of his clothing. The character is the hero of Arthur and his friends, and is dressed to resemble Superman in red and blue, with a large 'B' on his chest and a red cape.

Flopsymopsy thinks being a superhero sounds like hard work, so decides to find something less strenuous.
4. Flopsymopsy comes across another relative, who seems to be rushing around and worried about being late. If she follows him into his home, where will she end up?

Answer: Wonderland

The White Rabbit appears in 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland', written by Lewis Carroll, and is responsible for leading Alice into Wonderland when she follows him down his rabbit hole. The book was published in 1865 and has remained popular ever since with its cast of characters, including the 'Cheshire Cat', 'March Hare' and 'Queen of Hearts', being portrayed on film on numerous occasions. Narnia was created by C.S. Lewis, Discworld by Terry Pratchett and Lilliput by Jonathan Swift.

Flopsymopsy thinks all the characters in Wonderland are totally mad, not realising that they think the same about her. All the same she decides not to stay there and continues her search elsewhere.
5. Someone tells Flopsymopsy about a character called Babbitty Rabbitty, which she thinks sounds hopeful. Which magical author's books does she need to track down?

Answer: J. K. Rowling

'Babbitty Rabbitty and her Cackling Stump' was referred to in 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' as one of the stories in 'The Tales of Beedle the Bard', which was the book left to Hermione Granger in Albus Dumbledore's will. After finishing the Harry Potter books, J.K. Rowling went on to write 'The Tales of Beedle the Bard', originally in a limited series but which was made freely available in 2008, due to public demand.

Flopsymopsy is horrified to discover that Babbitty Rabbitty is not really a rabbit, but a witch who can take rabbit form. This is not what she expected at all, so her search will have to go on.
6. Flopsymopsy has been pointed in the direction of 'Watership Down', written by Richard Adams. What is the name of the main character in the book?

Answer: Hazel

Published in 1972, the book tells the story of a group of rabbits who escape their doomed warren and travel to establish a new colony, facing many dangers along the way. The novel was made into an animated film in 1978, with John Hurt and Nigel Hawthorne among the actors providing the voices. The film also featured the song 'Bright Eyes', sung by Art Garfunkel, which reached number one on the UK Singles chart.

Flopsymopsy isn't the bravest of rabbits, and some of the adventures described sound a bit too hazardous for her taste. She decides to investigate the next book on her list.
7. Flopsymopsy decides the books written by Alison Uttley sound less threatening. What colour rabbit features in the series?

Answer: Grey

The first 'Little Grey Rabbit' book was published in 1929 and was called 'The Squirrel, the Hare and the Little Gray Rabbit'. The character appeared in numerous sequels, with the last one being 'Little Grey Rabbit and the Snow-Baby' in 1973. Alison Uttley died in 1976 at the age of 91.

Unfortunately, Flopsymopsy isn't the brightest of rabbits and mistakes 'Little Grey Rabbit' for a mouse. She really should wear her spectacles. As she believes that she hasn't found a relative, she'll have to find another place to stay.
8. Flopsymopsy has heard about a character called Br'er Rabbit, who appears in which collection of stories put together by Joel Chandler Harris?

Answer: Uncle Remus

The stories of Br'er Rabbit, Br'er Fox and Br'er Bear were originally published in 1881 having been collected by Harris from African Americans in the southern United States. At the time, the character of Uncle Remus was considered acceptable but came to be seen as a racial stereotype and demeaning to Americans of African descent. The stories were filmed by the Disney studio in 1946 as 'Song of the South', which featured the song 'Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah'.

Flopsymopsy thinks a trip to America sounds exciting, until she finds out that she will need something called a 'passport', so she decides to look closer to home.
9. Flopsymopsy finds out that there is a rabbit in the stories set in the Hundred Acre Wood, and decides to join him. Which author created the stories set in this location?

Answer: A. A. Milne

The books in question are about Winnie-the-Pooh, who meets Rabbit by getting stuck in his rabbit hole. Unlike most of the animals in the books, Rabbit (and Owl) are based on real animals, not stuffed toys, and considers himself to have a brain. Rabbit is practical, organised and considers himself to be the leader of the animals. Roald Dahl's books include 'Fantastic Mr. Fox' (not very rabbit friendly) and Elisabeth Beresford created the Wombles. Lynne Reid Banks wrote 'The Indian in the Cupboard' and various sequels, as well as adult novels such as 'The L-Shaped Room'.

Flopsymopsy was getting on well with Rabbit until two larger animals came bouncing along and frightened her. Rabbit explained that they were friends called Tigger and Kanga, but Flopsymopsy was too nervous to hang around.
10. At last, Flopsymopsy meets up with her sister, Cottontail, and finds herself at home in the books written by Beatrix Potter. What is the name of their brother?

Answer: Peter

Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail appear in 'The Tale of Peter Rabbit', originally published in 1902. Peter is their brother, who falls foul of their neighbour, Mr. McGregor by stealing his vegetables. Their father had already ended up in a pie by taking the same risk. Peter returned to the garden in 1904, accompanied by his cousin, in 'The Tale of Benjamin Bunny'.

Flopsymopsy is very happy to have found her family, although she is a little concerned that she seems to have developed a split personality and isn't sure whether she is Flopsy or Mopsy. Perhaps some camomile tea will put her right.
