Where's The Da Vinci Code?

also, just a suggestion, maybe you could accept real names in addition to pen names, like Theodor Geisel for instance.

Well, seeing as it includes goddess worship and sex rites, obviously yes!

(That was sarcasm, by the way.)

Or better yet -- expand the quiz to include a column for those that have two names.
Level 73

I bought my grandson the entire set for Christmas. I was trying, trying, trying to remember the author's name on the front of the box but it just wouldn't transfer to my typing fingers.

Wow, someone's name is really Lemony Snicket? I thought that was a goofy part of the title.
Level 50

It's his pen name. He does a lot of ridiculous things like saying that A Series of Unfortunate Events really happened, saying he has a sister named Kit who dies, and a brother named Jacques who dies, and it's all ridiculous, and I stopped reading just because of it.

I am not so sure that "Watership Down," "Treasure Island." or "Huckleberry Finn" were written with the "Children/Young Adult" demographic in mind.

Carolyn Keene and Franklin W. Dixon are not real people. The Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys series were written by groups of ghost writers who invented those pen names.
