Age Game Quiz – guessing closed

I did this one a few years ago and thought we’d try it with some new authors and even some categories!  Just tell me who you think is youngest, if there’s more than two then list them in order from youngest to oldest.  I was surprised at the age of some!

I hope that you’ll try your hand at my (mostly) bookish quizzes every week, but it’s okay if you just want to play when the quiz interests you.  If you play you are eligible for a prize at the end of the round (sometime in June).  For all of the details, click here.  Submit your answers in the comment section – I will stop by and hide them throughout the week but try not to copy off anyone else :)   You have til Sunday to guess.

No need to know all the answers, one guess and you’ll be eligible for a prize. 

No Googling:)
