1. Hmm, 1000 miles seems longer than most of the borders I can think of between possible candidates. Aha, it must be Norway and Sweden.

2. N for Knight.

3. I don't know which, but either Gilbert or Sullivan. I think it was Sullivan.

4. Dog?

5. "Eurodisney" / Disneyland Paris, I should think.

6. It must be the belt because one of the "stars" in the sword is a nebula.

7. What unusual distinction is shared by all these children's books? The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, The Hobbit, How to Train Your Dragon, The Phantom Tollbooth, Tik-Tok of Oz, Watership Down, The Wind in the Willows, Winnie-the-Poo
"Winnie-the-Poo"? Is that a cut-and-paste error on DadOf3's part?

I should be able to get this one as I've read most of them. (Watership Down isn't a children's book though). But I haven't thought of it yet... Anthropomorphic animals is one thing that a lot of them have in common, but that doesn't seem unusual in a children's book, and I don't think it applies to The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. (Or The Hobbit, unless you count Beorn, which I suppose you could).

I wonder if they've all appeared at the top of adult best-seller lists?
