I know Saturn....but its a great book. I remember reading it in Fourth Grade, and it was one of those books that the teacher read to us. She would read a chapter a day. At the end the whole class was crying, and the teacher too. It is a neat memory.

Thanks for the nice comments!

Same here, my teacher read it to us in 3rd grade and at the end we had to go get a box tissue for everyone.

Loved it!. The g.kids and I spend quite a bit of time at the local library and I have read a couple of these to them. In fact I have three in my home that I thought would be good for those who could read for themselves. Great teaser.

I desperately need grandchildren. I got 3 of them..2 of which were word association guesses, that turned out to be right, but felt completely stumped. Great job and great idea and subject!

Yayyyyyyyyyy! I got them all, too. It doesn't hurt that I have read them all to classes of mine. Many of them do require tissues. For those of you who haven't read Summer of the Swans, I highly recommend it.
In my opinion, kids' books are good for ALL ages.

Apr 16, 2007

I never read any of these books to my kids, way back when they were young. Our taste ran to sci-fi and horror. Only kidding. I was only familiar with a few of these books, but some of them could almost be worked out even without knowing them. Keep up the good work, reruns are fine with me.

Hmm... I thought the obscure oasis was hard even though I love The Secret Garden.

"Obscure Oasis" could also be "Paradise Lost" . . . at least I thought it could be. Ha ha.

I love these kinds of puzzles. Got it in under sixty seconds. Good one.

came close to wrinkle in time. but haven't heard of any of those titles. Guess children's books are not my forte

Got the ever popular "Cat in the Hat" ! That was it, not a category 4Me I guess. No Grandma! I did get a lot of the words tho so fun.
breathesunshineAus**
Apr 16, 2007

I got them all fairly quickly probably because at one time or another I've read them all. I think I even have a paperback copy of Summer of the Swans in a box of books from my childhood! Thanks for the reminder of some really good titles.

Apr 16, 2007

Very Good!

Apr 16, 2007

The only one I missed was the Secret Garden. I also thought Paradise Lost. The funny thing is my daughter and I just read Secret Garden.

I got all of them except for Summer of the Swands. Great job.

Memory is a scary thing..I got 2 & then saw that I had commented on it last year and got 3!!! Not only didn't remember it as a 'rerun' but even got fewer correct. Hmmmm

Got all of them except for three... haven't even heard of three... >_

An oasis isn't really a garden.

Trishgal*us**
Apr 17, 2007

Would have got them all. I really think you should give us credit for Guessing Paradise Lost for Obscure oasis It was the plainest answer out there and we all know its not what you don't know , it's what you are sure you do know , that you are wrong about ,that is the scary thing.

That was fun! Enjoyed the literature references. I had never heard of "Summer of the Swans," but I got it. Thank you!
QrystalAca*
Jun 01, 2007

Cool teaser! I got all but the first one, which I hadn't heard of. I also hadn't heard of Summer of the Swan, but I think I've heard of Wrinkle in Time. I've read the other two. I liked how Obscure Oasis worked out to be Secret Garden, it made sense to me anyways!

Thank you for all the wonderful comments!

"Paradise Lost" is a good choice for "Obscure Oasis," only if you believe Milton's rather dense work is a children's book.
doeheadAus*
Apr 16, 2010

Another rerun.

I only knew one of these books. My grandchildren are all grown. Myself, I hav e written 8 children's books in poetry form for family and friends. I hope to inspire some child the love of poetry that I have.
jaycr*us*
Apr 17, 2013

Only heard of 2 of these books but I got 4 correct answers. Guess I didn't read the popular stuff.
cutebugAus*
Apr 17, 2013

I guess yesterday was a mistake. We're back to old reruns.
HABS2933Aca*
Apr 17, 2013

Though I have not heard of "Summer of Swans" it was pretty obvious that is what you wanted. As for "Paradise Lost" being accepted for an answer - the only problem with that is the quiz is on CHILDREN'S literature, Paradise Lost is not a kids' book.
I agree with whomever said that these books can be enjoyed by anyone. "Kiddie Lit" was one of my favorite classes among all the Literature classes I took in University.. that and the classes on pre-1900s Literature. The old classics are much more enjoyable than an of today's popular fiction

I LOVE children's books but I missed a couple of these. Babe, I'm fascinated to hear you have written children's books. Your grandchildren are very fortunate to have you!
