Quiz: Do you know your prequels?

A decade after we last read about Katniss Everdeen in Mockingjay, the third book in the Hunger Games series, Panem is calling once more.

A new book has been released, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes – but this one is set 64 years before events in the first of the original series.

It’s a common theme for books, films, television shows and even computer games – exploring characters’ backstories prior to the original works. They’re known as prequels – a portmanteau (the combining of two words' sounds and meanings to create a new word, such as brunch for breakfast and lunch) of the Latin pre, meaning before and the word sequel.

But how much do you know about the stories before the stories you know and love? Take our quiz and find out.
