Thanksgiving Wordle Challenge 2009 [#10]

Happy Thanksgiving Eve, Darling Readers! I sense the frenzy of defrosting, parboiling, baking, and scrubbing of toilets going on out there. I feel, and share, your pain.

Oh, who are we kidding? We love it!

Still, it makes all kinds of sense to take the occasional Wordle Break, cleansing the mind even as we make devious culinary plans to cleanse palates.

This is the second in our Thanksgiving Wordle Challenge 2009 series. Ms. Marmy the Fluffy Butted Feline has been reading over my shoulder, advising me on wordle style and color choices. At her suggestion, I reined in my urge to use weird fonts and out-of-this-world color choices, and have stayed in the realm of plodding realism.

The Magical Ms. Marmy has given this wordle her famous "*ack*:*ack*" of approval.

{cough::cough} [What do you think, La Fresca? Too many hints? Well, in my defense, 'tis the season for giving, yo.]

Directions: Unscramble the Wordle below, then identify the novel and author from which the Wordle was formed.

At this time, we're thinking that Thanksgiving Wordle Challenge 2009 will consist of a total of four Wordle Challenges. Two down, two to go. And yes, as promised on Twitter by @The_Castafiore, we are attempting to represent a different continent per wordle. Should you happen to be a representative of the continents we fail to honor, I beg your pardon and beseech your forbearance.

Because @The_Castafiore could not restrain her wagging tongue and tip-tapping fingers, we are also committed to featuring Island Nations during the Xmas Wordle Challenges.

What's that? Hmm? Oh, the prize! Tickets for you and four of your closest friends to the 2010 New Year's Day 9:20 AM début of Gounod's Faust, that which keeps La Bonne et Belle Bianca Castafiore busy and out of trouble. Unfortunately, we cannot swing the cost of transportation to Tête de Hergé and hope that won't deter you from the competition. We'll get you here somehow, even if we have to send the submarine.
