Byron Presents: Bell Mountain Trivia Question No. 11

Image result for images of quokkas

Well, so far I haven’t come up with any questions that have stumped everybody…

G’day, mates! Byron the Quokka here, with Bell Mountain Trivia Question No. 11. There’s always some smarty-pants who knows the answer. Humans must be smarter than we thought. But let’s see if this one stops ’em:

Who was the only person to escape the avalanche that buried the Thunder King’s hall? (Hint: this person left early.)

Remember, the winner of this contest gets a Bell Mountain book autographed by the author, who’s too cheap to give you a bicycle.

Of course, if you haven’t read any of the books, you won’t be playing in this contest. To get an idea of what you’re missing, just go to the home page and click “Books.” It seems like ages since any human bought one, let alone posted a Customer Review on amazon.com.

Hop aboard, and join the fun!


Bell Mountain Trivia Contest: Halfway!

See the source image

G’day, mates! Byron the Quokka here, with a nice snack and a Bell Mountain trivia question. This’ll be Question No. 10 in the contest, which means we’re at the halfway marker.

The questions are bound to get harder from here to No. 20. Patty suggested this question today, and I thought it was just right to be No. 10. Ready? Here it is:

What is Helki the Rod’s other nickname? And if you don’t like the word “nickname,” which I don’t–What else is Helki called, besides Helki the Rod?

I want to say the winner of this contest at least wins one of the lifeboats from the Tar Princess, but Lee’s stuck on making an autographed book the prize. Humans! Guess it takes a quokka to really think big.

Oops, gotta go! The bloke with the hairy legs is eyeballing the rest of my bagel.


Byron the Quokka: Bell Mountain Trivia Question No.9

G’day! Byron the Quokka here; and those up there in the picture are my cousins, Jimbo and Marybeth, trying to help this poor blighter get his cell phone working. He wants to be the first to take a crack at the Bell Mountain Trivia Question, No. 9. Don’t worry, they won’t give him the answer.

Right! Well, here it is:

Who was the first human being met by Gurun when she came to Obann?

We do have a certain person who’s answered all the questions right so far, but Lee won’t let me say who it is. Won’t let me give out a bicycle as a prize, either.

Now every quokka knows the answer to that question, so let’s see how you humans do.


Bell Mountain Trivia Contest: Question No. 8

See the source image

G’day, mates! Byron the Quokka here.

I’m about to go into Violet Crepuscular’s house for my writing lesson, but before I do, here’s the Bell Mountain trivia question that I promised you. Question No. 8:

What is the name of the Thunder King’s fortress?

A lot of the quokkas think these questions are too easy. Well, it can’t be helped! The questions are designed for humans, after all. I can safely say no human ever beat a quokka in a game of Clue. Same goes for Bell Mountain trivia.

And if you haven’t read any of Lee’s Bell Mountain books yet–well, blimey, what’re you waiting for???


Comment Contest: 163 to Go

See the source image

G’day, mates! Byron the Quokka here, and my comment contest is plodding along like a wombat hitched to a cartful of bricks–what ever made me think I could do this job???

The goal is 47,000, with 163 left to go. The winner gets an autographed copy of one of Lee’s Bell Mountain books. If you win that, and the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest, you’ll become the proud owner of a ship! The good ship Tar Princess is waiting for you. All you’ll have to do is drag it off the sandbank and touch it up with a lick of paint.

Here in Oz it’s the middle of winter, although up here on Rottnest Island, it don’t get too cold. Most of us quokkas would love a chance to frolic in the snow, but fair dunkum fat chance of that!

Would you believe it–only 12 comments today? Crikey, I should’ve kept me mouth shut when they were lookin’ for volunteers to run this caper.

It’d all be so different if he’d just let me hand out a bicycle to the winner!


Comment Contest News (via Quokka)

G’day! Byron doesn’t know it, but we’re tryin’ to help him run this comment contest. I am his Aunt Gladys and this is his Cousin Mitchell. And there are still 280 comments to go, to reach 47,000 and have a winner.

Byron thinks he’s doing it all by himself, but we must have half the quokkas on Rottnest Island lending a hand in this. We are determined to prove that cuteness is no obstacle to being ruthlessly effective in a job.

I don’t know about that nasty old ship Byron has up for a prize, but I do know the winner will get an autographed copy of one of Lee’s Bell Mountain books. Mitchell has them all and has read the whole series at least half a dozen times. You should hear his Roshay Bault imitation!

Let’s see if we can wrap up this contest this weekend, shall we? Then Byron can concentrate on the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest. We all think he has to come up with harder questions than the ones he’s asked so far.


Win a Ship!

Psst! Byron the Quokka here, and let’s whisper, shall we, because we don’t want Lee to overhear us.

I’ve figured out how to wake this blog up, good and proper.

If anyone out there is bouncy enough to win both the comment contest and the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest–well, then, crikey, mate! You’ll win a ship!

All right, I admit the Tar Princess needs a bit of tender loving care, she’s sort of a fixer-upper. But yea and forsooth–it’s a ship! And the Tar Princess, well, she’s just been sitting there for years, whoever owns her doesn’t want her anymore.

C’mon, now! How many blokes and sheilas on your block own a ship???

So let’s start commenting, let’s get into a Bell Mountain state of mind, whatever that is–and let’s get this blog here humming again!


Byron the Quokka: Bell Mountain Trivia Question No. 7

See the source image

G’day! Byron here–and don’t mind the knife, I promised Mum I’d do a bit of whittling today. Sometimes we fall behind a little in our whittling, and then we have to help each other out.

Oh! But I’m supposed to give you the next question in the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest. This would be really great if a lot more people read the books, but oh, well… So here it is, Question No. 7:

In what book (not a Bell Mountain book! one of her books) did Ellayne find the story of The Glass Bridge?

Some of the quokkas are complaining that the questions are too easy; so I have to remind ’em that those questions are designed for humans, not for us.


Byron the Quokka: Bell Mountain Trivia Question No. 6

G’day! Here I am with another bicycle, which if Lee had any sense, he’d offer as the prize to the winner of this trivia contest. But no–he just wants to give out autographed books. He won’t listen to me.

Byron the Quokka here, and on with the contest! Here’s Question No. 6:

Who caused the avalanche that buried the Thunder King’s hall at Golden Pass?

Right, I know it’s hard to get a lot of people to play a trivia game that’s about some books that hardly anyone has ever heard of. Well, if you want to find out more about them, just click “Books.” Or visit amazon.com and read the Customer Reviews. He’s won awards for them, y’know–the first two books in the series, Bell Mountain and The Cellar Beneath the Cellar, both won awards. Why do you think us quokkas read these books over and over again? And we’re world-famous for our good taste in literature!


Byron the Quokka: Bell Mountain trivia question No. 5

Image result for images of quokkas

G’day! Byron the Quokka here, with Question No. 5 in my Bell Mountain Trivia contest. Here it is.

Question: Who is “Et-taa-na-qiqu”?

I’m trying to talk Lee into offering a bigger prize than just an autographed book. He won’t go for a bicycle; I wonder if I can get him to make the prize an oven. We had an oven once, on Rottnest Island. A very nice family of quokkas lived in it.
