G’day! Byron the Quokka here–and if I ever knew it’d be so much trouble, running a comment contest, I never would’ve volunteered to do it.

Right–we’re shooting for 47,000 comments, we’ve got 46,335, so that leaves 665 comments left to go. I thought we’d be done by now. I blame Lee. He should’ve listened to me and offered a bicycle as a prize. But no, he has to stick to his autographed books.

And then there’s the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest, I have to come up with Question No. 6. Tomorrow, maybe. My mum says running two contests at the same time is fair dinkum loopy and I never should’ve let him do it–but that’s all “How d’you get to Sydney Opera House? Practice, mate–practice!”

Here is Question No. 4 of the Bell Mountain Trivia contest!!

G’day! I promised to give you all Question No. 4 in the Bell Mountain trivia contest and it took me all day to think of it! Running these contests isn’t as easy as it looked.

Right, well, here it is–

Who gave Cavall to King Ryons?

Mind you, you can’t get these answers if you haven’t read any of Lee’s books–not unless you’ve got a special kind of mind that I’m sure doesn’t exist.

And now back to the family nest for a game of Clue!

G’day! Byron the Quokka here, reminding you that we have a comment contest going–and there aren’t any bloomin’ comments yet today!

Only 984 comments to go, to get to No. 47,000, and the reader who posts it wins… oh, one of those autographed books he’s always giving out. Anyone can play, as many times as you like, and all comments are eligible, except [riffles through rulebook; clears throat]–

“Comments abusive to anyone else on this site; comments containing blasphemy or profanity; commercials thinly disguised as comments; comments simply too inane to bother with.”

My cousin Lucy likes inane comments, but she’s the only one.

So let’s see how fast we can get to 47,000! And later today I’ll run up Question No. 4 in the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest.

(I hope these generate some excitement soon! This is my first job ever, and I don’t want to…

My allergies are killing me again, and somehow I just can’t get up for covering any more nooze. So it’s time to hand over to Byron the Quokka…

G’day, mates! Byron the Quokka here, with Bell Mountain trivia question No. 3. I hope some more of you will play–nothing quite so blah as a game that nobody plays. And remember, the winner gets a bicycle–oops! I mean an autographed book.

Let me hit you with a question that’s only a little bit hard.

Question: Who was the outlaw who called himself “the king of Lintum Forest”?

I’ve never met another quokka who couldn’t answer this one, but the contest’s only open to you humans. Don’t ask me why. I guess we just like to see you folks enjoy yourselves. And we’re tryin’ to help Lee sell some books.

Byron the Quokka: Next Question!

Here’s Question No. 2 of the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest!

G’day! Byron the Quokka here, with Question No. 2 of the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest. I’ve watched Lee do this several times, so I’m sure I can do it, too, while he goes outside  and tries to write another book.

Right, here goes! Question No. 2–

What is the name of Martis’ horse?

Yeah, I know that’s an easy one, but no fear–they’ll get harder as we go along. Remember, whoever gets the most right answers wins a bicycle… Oops, shouldn’t’ve said that. The prize is supposed to be a book.

In case of a tie, you both win.

Now don’t make me look like some poor sap of a kangaroo by not coming up with answers. If this doesn’t work, I won’t get any more contests to run. Here, I’ll even give you a hint!

It’s not “Man O’ War.”

Important Announcement! (from Byron the Quokka)

C’mon, everybody! Join the comment contest!!

G’day, it’s me, Byron the Quokka, with a super-important announcement!

We now have just over 45,000 comments on this blog, and Lee says I can start another comment contest as long as I don’t promise that the winner gets a bicycle.

So OK, new comment contest, with the finish line at 47,000, which means that the next contest will be for No. 50,000, a real milestone–and those dumb  wombats said we’d never make it! But first this contest. Whoever posts Comment No. 47,000 wins the prize.

I don’t know what he’s got against giving away bicycles. [Editor’s Note: Byron, it wasn’t ours to give! How many times do I have to tell you that?] So I guess an autographed copy of his new book, The Temptation–and if you’ve already got it, you can ask for a different book.

I don’t know. A bag of pretzels and a can of…

Here is a very important announcement from Byron the Quokka!!

G’day! That picture up there shows Aunt Feezie, Uncle Jeff, and Cousin Ethelred playing Bell Mountain trivia. We quokkas can’t ever get enough of it!

Byron the Quokka here, to introduce The Bell Mountain Trivia Contest, which is like totally all my idea and Lee said I could do it as long as I don’t forget I’m supposed to be running a comment contest–the one you win if you post Comment No. 47,000.

This contest is really simple and anyone can play. Every few days, I’ll ask a Bell Mountain Trivia question. And after 20 questions, whoever got the most right answers wins a prize: an autographed book, most likely. (You know how he is about bicycles.)

Right! Question No. 1:

Where does the best wine in Obann come from?

Of course, it’s a lot easier to answer these questions if you’ve read the books. Aunt Feezie has read The…
