Name These Children's Authors Trivia Quiz

With homage to Minch's quiz called "Authors' Initials." I give you a children's author's first two (or three) names. You type in the writer's surname. For example, if the clue is "Joanne Kathleen," you type "Rowling."

Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Alan Alexander

Answer: Milne

A.A. Milne, creator of Winnie-the-Pooh, Piglet, Christopher Robin, and company. Also a gifted children's poet.
2. Elwyn Brooks

Answer: White

E.B. White, author of "Charlotte's Web," "Stuart Little," and more. Also a wonderful essayist for "The New Yorker" magazine.
3. Pamela Lyndon

Answer: Travers

P.L. Travers, creator of Mary Poppins, Michael and Jane Banks, and their world. In the books, Mary Poppins was much more "tart" than Julie Andrews portrayed her. She wasn't really a kind person at all!
4. John Ronald Reuel

Answer: Tolkien

Creator of the classic series that begins with "The Hobbit." If he were alive today, I wonder what J.R.R. Tolkien would think of the movies adapted from his works.
5. Clive Staples

Answer: Lewis

C.S. Lewis, author of the fanciful, perhaps religious children's series that begins with "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe." He wrote some fabulous science fiction books for adults, too, and some wonderful essays on Christianity.
6. Hans Augusto

Answer: Rey

H.A. Rey, author of the classic "Curious George" books.
7. Lucy Maud

Answer: Montgomery

L.M. Montgomery, author of "Anne and Green Gables" and its many sequels. These lovely books take place on Canada's Prince Edward Island, where my grandma, a Ferguson, grew up. Her family used to ice-skate on a vast frozen bay there.
8. James Matthew

Answer: Barrie

A Scot, J.M. Barrie was of course the author of "Peter Pan."
9. Here's a harder one: Susan Eloise

Answer: Hinton

S.E. Hinton wrote "The Outsiders" and other well-known young adult novels.
10. Elaine Loeb

Answer: Konigsburg

E.L. Konigsburg wrote "The Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler." E.M. Forster was an English novelist (for adults) who wrote "Howard's End" and many other great books. Louis Sachar wrote the YA novel "Holes." R.L. Stine writes what are, in my opinion, badly-written thrillers for kids (the "Goosebumps" series).
