PENT WORDS 75
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 White item painted red in Wonderland / First name of composer Holst or Mahler
2 Sweetheart / Hand-to-hand struggle
3 Make better / Zombies ____ My Neighbors (1993 video game)

5 ____ one on (get drunk) / Make like new again
6 Tim whose surname became synonymous with genuflecting in prayer / Fruit on the reverse of Georgia's state quarter
7 Musical composition for practicing a technique / Instrument for Pablo Casals
8 "Okie from Muskogee" singer's surname / ____-O-Honey (candy brand)
9 Not ecclesiastical / Toilet
10 What Mr. Brown can do in a Dr. Seuss book / Tropic Thunder actor ____ T. Jackson
