纳尼亚故事猜谜

纳尼亚传奇

闲聊时,和家人讨论了一个问题:在文学作品里,有什么故事和雪景有关?

儿子马上说:“Narnia!”

就是英国作家路易斯(C.S. Lewis)著名的纳尼亚传奇故事。

他指的故事是The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe《狮子、女巫、魔衣橱》。

这个故事我大学一年级才读,可是,儿子年纪小小,已经读了好几遍了。

故事里有句难忘的话。白女巫说,这个地方是:”Always winter; never Christmas!” (冬天永在;圣诞不来)

儿子既然这么喜欢这个故事,我请他列出几个问题,让我的读者动动脑。以下是他自己列出的十个问题,有的好像很难,我也搞不太懂。

1) How many children are there? (故事里有多少个孩子?)

2) Which was the first child to go into Narnia? (第一个进入纳尼亚的孩子是谁?)

3) Name the children in the order they go into Narnia. (顺序列出进入纳尼亚的那几个孩子的名字)

4) What does Aslan look like? (阿斯兰长得像什么?)

5) What does Mr Tumnus call the wardrobe? (Tumnus(唐纳斯)先生怎么形容那个魔衣橱?)

6) What is in the middle of the wood? (树林中间有个东西叫什么?)

7) What does Edmund eat in Narnia? (埃德蒙在纳尼亚里吃了什么? )

8) What can the white witch do? (白女巫能施什么法?)

9) What is the table where they meet Aslan made of? (他们在碰见阿斯兰的地方有一张桌子。那张桌子是用什么制成的?)

10) Who teases Lucy  the most? (谁最常嘲弄露西?)

欢迎读者把答案写来。(我很想说答中有奖,但不知道该给什么奖,只好作罢。可是,做人总不可以有奖才动脑吧……。)

  2. 吾儿说,几乎都答对了!
    小女生好厉害哦!
    第六题是:lamppost
    Sweet–是对的,但是更准确的答案是:Turkish Delight.
    Mr Tumnus 以为Wardrobe和Spare room 是国家,而把Wardrobe读成war drobe, 把 spare room 读成 spare-oom
