PENT WORDS 9

In this puzzle, you must divide the grid into pentominoes (regions containing five cells each), and write a letter in each cell. The rows, reading from left to right, will contain the words hinted at by the ACROSS clues. The letters in the pentominoes, in reading order (left to right starting with the top row), will form the words hinted at by the PENTOMINOES clues; these clues are presented in no particular order. (In the example above, the rows spell PLANT, SHARE, and BITES, and the pentominoes spell the words PLANS, TREES, and HABIT.) Use the ACROSS answers to determine where the pentominoes are.
ACROSS (two answers per row):
1 The Happy Prince and Other Tales author / Word in the title of a Bee Gees hit
2 Notable Jeopardy! contestant / Divided
3 Game associated with the Russian folk song "Korobeiniki" / Jekyll's sociopathic alternate personality
4 ____ pack (Ghostbusters gadget) / Surrounded by
5 "No Dogs ____!" (song from Snoopy, Come Home) / ____ Lanka
6 Leave the workforce, perhaps / Covered with greenery
7 Leonidas, for one / Coming-out party honoree
8 Tribute / You put your tires on these
9 Baby who's only a few weeks old / Word following "Bronze" or "New"
10 Sleeveless garment / Biblical figure with a riddle
