PENT WORDS 22
(click here for a PDF version)
This puzzle was written for patron M. Sean Molley, who supports me at the $20+ level on Patreon and is therefore entitled to suggest one word or phrase every month for me to incorporate into a puzzle. His April 2016 suggestion is used here.
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, 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 Dummy / Electric guitarist's need
2 Fairy queen from  A Midsummer Night's Dream / "____ Will Be Loved" (Maroon 5 song)
3 Just about all / Was environmentally conscious, perhaps
4 Approach / Old ____ (1957 film)
5 Many Shakespeare works / ____ Park, CA
6 A long period of time / Mommie ____ (1981 film)
7 ____ a bell (be familiar) / Hold, as a grudge
8 Hooded snake / Mombasa's country
9 New Haven university / Improvised
10 Part of a shoe / Chip 'n ____ Rescue Rangers
