    my apartment complex has a trivia contest every month...this month it is on books for young readers...

    or do you know a website where i can look up book summaries and try to figure these out...

    1. what character did e.b. white dream up while doing a little snoozing on a train?

    2. what youthful sleuth solved 23 mysteries penned under Mildred Wirt Benson's more famous alias?

    3. What beloved character lives with a dog, a turtle and a nanny?

    4. What magical missus lives in an upside-down house and doles out cures for kids' bad habits?

    5. In what novel are two siblings and a friend whisked through space and time by a mysterious trio to fight IT and save their father?

    I think #4 is Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle. In fact, I'm almost positive. She was my favorite when I was little and I read one of the books to my fourth graders last year.
