Too much emphasis on Dahl. Not exactly "literature".

Wonderfully done quiz! And I disagree with slamb. Just because the target audience is younger does not mean it's not literature.
Sep 2nd, 2011 at 22:01 GMT
Excellent quiz. More please!

Nice quiz. I'm curious to know who the Banks family are. The only one I can think of lives in Bel Air.
