Nation Trivia

Brain Snacks: Tasty Tidbits of Knowledge

As part of a contest, teens submitted short films adapted from Nation. The 10 finalists include live action, claymation, and stop-motion animation. Check out the finalists! (source)

Need to turn that frown upside down? Start by turning the world on its head. Daphne's not the only one who's thought of this. Check out this website and change your worldview. (source)

Nation was adapted into a play. If you live in England (and can travel back in time) you can see it acted live on stage. Wonder what that would be like. (source)

Near the end of Nation, Mau mentions, "There were more worlds than there are numbers" (15.48). In 2012, Sir Terry wrote a whole book (with sci-fi great Stephen Baxter) further exploring this parallel world theory: The Long Earth. (source)
