Answers

Q1: A :c) Dug – and his favourite word is ‘squirrel!’. 

Q2: A: a) Remy. The film’s title refers to the French dish, ‘ratatouille’, which is served at the end of the film to great acclaim and is also a play on words about the species of the main character. 

Q3: A: b) Bill Murray, who said: “I thought it would be kind of fun, because doing a voice is challenging, and I'd never done that.”

Q4: A: c) Fang is an oversized Boarhound who slobbers constantly and is utterly devoted to Hagrid.

Q5: A: c) Snowbell – who, at the end of the film redeems himself by rescuing Stuart from an empty bird’s nest in Central Park.

Q6: A: c) The Cheshire Cat, which historians think was inspired by a carving in Croft church, North Yorkshire, where Lewis Carroll’s father, Reverend Charles Dodgson, was rector.

Q7: A: a) G-Force. The guinea pigs Darwin, Blaster, and Juarez are so successful in their task that they are appointed special agents of the FBI.

Q8: A: c) Thumper. He’s known and named for his habit of thumping his left hind foot.

Q9: A: b) The Magical Menagerie. The witch from whom Hermione purchased him stated that he had been in the shop for a long time as "nobody wanted him".

Q10: A: a) Nana. She is the nurse of Wendy, John, and Michael Darling. Even though Mr Darling is somewhat embarrassed to have a dog in his employ, Nana is very good at her job.

Q11: A: b) The term 'Twilight Bark' was coined by the book’s author Dodie Smith. The original usage is: “Many people must have noticed how dogs like to bark in the early evening. Indeed, twilight has sometimes been called ‘Dogs' Barking Time’. Busy town dogs bark less than country dogs, but all dogs know all about the Twilight Barking. It is their way of keeping in touch with distant friends, passing on important news, enjoying a good gossip.”

Q12: A: a) and c) Before he was Ron’s companion, Scabbers belonged to his older brother Percy.
