Ella,

Melody,
All of your guesses for puzzles 1, 4, 5, 6 (from book 11), 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15 were perfectly correct! Your score is 33 points!

Feel free to guess #2 and #3 later. I'd be quite surprised if you didn't get #3. ;)

Ooh! 3 is Sara Stanley, right? :)

And now I'll guess what books the names are from.

1. Anne of Green Gables
3. The Story Girl
4. Heh...some Anne book! I'll go with Anne of the Island.
5. Anne of Green Gables
7. Anne of GG
8. The same
9. Mmm... Rilla of Ingleside?
10. Anne of Avonlea (and the Island, and probably others too)

Still haven't seriously attempted 2, so I might be back. :)

5- Muriel Stacy (AofGG)
