Now, you can find the answer to this puzzle via a search engine, but it’s much more fun to guess. This piece of information comes to me via my agent, who is not so much a mine of information but a whole information fracking operation.
What well-known character in children’s fiction is known in Chinese as Fú Dìmó? The characters literally mean ‘crouching’, ‘earth’, and ‘devil’, and the whole name could be translated as ‘demon crouching on the ground’. By the way, the picture above isn’t going to help you one bit!
After you have had your guess, feel free to put it below as a comment. But if you do look it up with a search engine, don’t enter that answer in the comment box – you’ll spoil the fun for everyone else!
I’ll post the right answer in due course.
