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!
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???
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!
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.
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.
