Yay I get to pick the easiest one!
Slytherin, Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff. The four houses of Hogwarts, that is.

My favourite Blake poem:
Tyger Tyger. burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye.
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

#8 - Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy.

Though to be picky, those 4 only appear together in LWW, PC, and THAHB - VDT has Edmund, Lucy and their cousin Eustace; TSC has Eustace back with his friend Jill; TMN is Polly and Digory; then TLB brings everyone back to Narnia except Susan. But I'm assuming that you are looking for the original 4!

Four word M.G. Vassanji novel title:

'When She Was Queen'

If you want to count the word, "The" then there are actually two dour word novels, the other is, 'The Book of Secrets.'

Barbara: I wouldn't have considered that one the easiest, but in any case, you got the right answer.

Megan: That's it.

Mongoose: That's it. I figured someone would try to argue Toto's case, so thanks for not doing that.

Raidergirl: Good job. Without looking it up, I could only remember Langoliers and Secret Window.

Wollamshram: That's it and thanks for visiting!

Kate: You are right and thanks for setting the record straight. I really need to read more of that series.

Teddy: Actually, you are right with The Book of Secrets. When She Was Queen is not a novel, but a short story collection, isn't it?

Oh. I looked it up. But I looked it up in the book on my bookshelf, which didn't feel quite like cheating as opposed to looking it up on google. I also only recognized The Langoliers as a story I've read. I'm sure I read the whole book, but it wasn't familiar at all.
