Quiz of the Month – June 2014

The theme of this month’s quiz is “recurring characters in literature.”  All of the characters below appear in more than one book or short story.  Name the authors who created them, and, for extra credit, name the series that the character appears in if it is different from the name of the character listed below.  This list may open up a whole new world of books to you.  And if I have left out your favorite series, please forgive me.  I could have gone on indefinitely.  You can find the answers on my Quiz Answers page.
