Fuse 8 n’ Kate: Guess the Book!

This week Kate caught a case of, what we call in our family, the galloping crud. And since the galloping crud does not jive with podcast recording, we’d figured we’d let her rest and recuperate. That means it’s time for my favorite (new) game . . . .

What the Heck Were We Talking About?

The rules are simple. I’m going to produce for you nine different quotes that Kate and I have produced since the beginning of the podcast. Next, I’ll show you the chart of all the picture books we’ve talked about. Let’s see if you can match the right quote to the right book. I warn you, sometimes it’s going to get a little tricky . . .


  1. “50% of this book is just depressed donkeys.”
  2. “You are an idiot. I hope the gloves choke you to death.”
  3. “On this very first page there’s a scary clown, a demented white rabbit from Alice Through the Looking Glass, and then you have this giraffe with the longest eyelashes and I love it.”
  4. “It’s like the Where’s Waldo of literature.”
  5. “Why is there something on fire on the cover?”
  6. “Is it a homeless man or is it a car accident? Either way, why is it on your fridge?”
  7. “There is a rumor that on the duck boat … that little Richard Nixon … was on that boat.”
  8. “Do we need to bring in Bunny Protective Services here?”
  9. “It’s an Evil Groot with wings.”

Picture Books

All right. Think you got them all? Here are the answers, just in case:


  1. Sylvester and the Magic Pebble
  2. The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything
  3. Corduroy
  4. Who Needs Donuts?
  5. Doctor De Soto
  6. If You Give a Mouse a Cookie
  7. Make Way for Ducklings
  8. Runaway Bunny
  9. Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins

Till next week, folks, thanks for playing!
