For this edition of BYJU’S Sunday Challenge, we flick through the many fascinating pages of books to find tit-bits and trivia that will make you ponder and wonder! So put on your thinking caps and get ready for some page-turning questions!

Remember:

You can take a shot at the questions and leave your guesses in the comments section below. Answers will be revealed on subsequent Sundays in the comment section. 

So keep your eyes peeled and put on your thinking caps!

Ready? Here are your questions:

Question 1

Which famous 20th century children’s classic opens with the following line?

“All children, except one, grow up.”

Question 2

Pictured below is the pet dog of  a certain hero from Gaul. The creators of this dog claim that he is a ‘canine ecologist’. He loves trees and howls in distress whenever one is damaged. What’s the name of the dog and his more famous master?

Question 3

In this 18th century book named after the famous protagonist, we see him go on a journey that includes funny sounding places like Brobdingnag, Laputa, Balnibarbi, Luggnagg, Glubbdubdrib. He also visits the land of the Houyhnhnms, who are described as highly intelligent horse-like creatures. But we know him for the first part of his journey, one that we have all read about in our childhood. Who is this traveler?

Question 4

There is something peculiar about the way this book was written. In fact, it has something missing inside it, which makes it quite unique in terms of the way language is used. What is missing in the book? (Hint: Look closely at the cover of the book).

 

Leave your guesses in the comments section below. And remember, answers will be revealed next Sunday in the comments section too, along with a brand new edition of BYJU’S Sunday Challenge.
