Guess a Quote (6.24.14)

Guess A Quote 6.24.14Trying out a new look for our Guess a Quote picture. The question mark glasses on their own are getting old. 😉 However, the title and picture on this post are not entirely truthful. I am not posting a Guess a Quote this week because I won’t be posting a quote this week or next week because I won’t be around to moderate the comments or announce who got it right. There may be some other fun posts instead, but I’m not sure yet.

Last week Emily Ruth was the only one to correctly guess the quote. The quote came from The Ugly Duckling, by Hans Christian Anderson. Emily Ruth informed me that he’s the most Disney-adapted author. Didn’t check that out myself, but it’s a fun piece of trivia. 😉

I’m very grateful to all of you who helped me pick a name for “Little Friend”. I hope to announce the results either tomorrow or Thursday. I’ve got a lot going on with my writing right now, and I’m looking forward to sharing the new developments with all of you soon. Stay tuned!

And, since there’s no quote to guess this week, I’ll leave you with a question.

What classics have you read that I could pull quotes from for future Guess a Quotes??

  1. Disney has adapted HCA so many times!!! There’s the Little Mermaid, the Matchstick Girl (a short before Brother Bear, look it up!!), the Ugly Duckling (Lilo and Stitch), and finally and most recently, the Snow Queen (Frozen).

  2. Narnia, Lord of the Rings, Oliver Twist, Great Expectations, The Secret Garden, A Little Princess, Little Lord Fauntleroy, The Wind in the Willows, Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, Robinson Crusoe, Black Beauty, and Anne of Green Gables.

    Here are some of my favorite Newberies: A Wrinkle in Time, The Westing Game, Calico Bush, Caddie Woodlawn, Indian Captive, Adam of the Road, Johnny Tremain, Misty of Chincoteague, Tree of Freedom, Ginger Pye, Moccasin Trail, Old Yeller, Rifles for Watie, Gone-Away Lake, The Witch of Blackbird Pond, Onion John, The Bronze Bow, The Black Cauldron, From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, The High King, Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH, Julie of the Wolves,Bridge to Terebithia, The Sign of the Beaver, The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, The Giver, and Because of Winn-Dixie.

    Some of the Newberies are too recent to be classics yet, but still, they’re Newberies. And I probably listed way too many, but I couldn’t stop once I got started. 🙂

      • You’re welcome. I held myself back by only scanning through the list of Newberies on Wikipedia and not going down to look at my bookshelf. 🙂 That could have been even more massive.

    “Emma” if you want more Jane Austen, and “Ivanhoe” by Sir Walter Scott.
