Ah, Robinson Crusoe. What's not to love about Daniel Defoe's classic adventure novel, in which a dude named Robinson goes on a cruise? The only story to come close to achieving such a profound impact on the English literary canon has to be Robert Louis Stevenson's The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, a novella (which, if I'm not mistaken, is Spanish for "novel") about a couple of guys who find a totally weird briefcase.

These and other absolutely, positively correct interpretations of classic novels can be found in F this Test: Even More of the Very Best Totally Wrong Test Answers [Chronicle Books, $9.95].
