The Well Read Guess (Week 10)

Each week I post quotes from 2 picture books - a new(er) picture book and a classic picture book. Be the first to identify a quote (by the following Tuesday at noon), and earn an entry into the current monthly giveaway! Identify both the book and the author for a quote, and you'll get two entries. Identify both for both quotes, get four entries.

Quote #1 (Brand-Spankin'-New-Book): Oh No, Astro! by Matt Roeser, Brad Woodard
"Please keep your distance. You stay in your orbit and I'll stay in mine. It's one of the core rules of the cosmos, you know. And yet, you've come closer."


"Meanwhile, an Earth girl named Nova was enjoying a quiet night of stargazing, when something caught her eye."

Quote #2 (Classic Book): Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs by Judi and Ron Barrett
"After a brief shower of orange juice, low clouds of sunny-side up eggs moved in followed by pieces of toast. Butter and jelly sprinkled down for the toast. And most of the time it rained milk afterwards."

Monthly Giveaway: Middle Grade Prize Pack!

The winner of this month's giveaway will receive a Middle Grade Prize Pack, including Bridge to Terabithia, Pippi Longstocking, James and the Giant Peach, and Holes!
