Not So Secret Sisters

See if you can guess and name the following famous sisters.

1. These Two Solve Mysteries in Children’s Books

2. These Two Wrote Books

3. These Three Are Cartoon Characters

4. These Two Play Tennis

5. This One Sings; This One Acts

6. These Two Wrote Advice Columns

7. These Three Were Harmony Singing Group Whose Career Spanned the 1920s through the 1960’s.

Pamela Tracy put together this game for the Secret Sister unveiling party at her church. See if you can guess the pairs. I'll be checking in and out through-out the day and will let you know when someone gets them correct :)

BTW, I have one sister. Her name is Roxanne.

My next book, Love Finds You in Sunflower, Kansas, has a heroine with two sisters, one younger and one older.

BTW, I put two games together for the Secret Sister revealing party at my church. The other one is Famous Secrets. It over of the LI blog, today. Try that one, too.

Looks fun, Pamela! I'll tackle it a little later today. Good luck, everyone! :)

PamelaTracy said...

You should have seen my church group. Some growled at me; others rubbed their hands together in glee.

Teresa said...

Well, I'm lousy with this so I'll adventure the ones it came to my mind:

2. Bronte Sisters
4. Williams Sister: Venus and Serena
7. The Andrew Sisters
8. The Olsen Twins: Mary Kate and Ashley

Kim Watters said...

I have no clue. Sorry. Brain dead today, so I'm not going to even try, even though it loks like so much fun.

PamelaTracy said...

Okay, Theresa,
Name the Andrew and Bronte sisters :) After that, it process of elimination.

Lyn Cote said...

Are the tennis players Venus and Serena?

Teresa said...

Well, actually the Bronte Sisters were three but I'd forgotten Anne and was thinking "Charlotte and Emily".

Then I remembered The Three Sisters for the cartoon characters.

I told you I was bad for this, but loved the idea. Thank you for coming up with it.

PamelaTracy said...

I'm not going to answer yet, Lyn, but I like you're thinking.

PamelaTracy said...

If you're bad at this why are you in first place?

Merrillee said...

I have no sisters, just brothers, but I will play the game.

2 Emily and Charlotte
4 Venus and Serena
5 Wynonna and Ashley
6 Ann and Abby
8 Ashley and Mary-Kate

These are all I could figure out. I thought maybe number 7 was the McGuire sisters, but none of their names is on the list. Guess I don't know much about sisters since I don't have one. LOL

I am clueles son the other two. Don't know why I remembered the Andrews sisters. I'm not THAT old.

PamelaTracy said...

I've never heard of the McGuire Sisters. I think I channeled the Lawrence Welk Show because I listened from my crib.
It was cool, though, to see what age group answered which question first. Linda's right. The Andrew Sisters.

Ausjenny said...

1. I guess its Nan and Flossie but don’t know them

2. Emily, Charlotte

3. Chipettes, Brittany, Eleanor, Jeanette

4. Venus, Serena

5. Wynonna and Ashley Judd

6. Abby , Ann

7. LaVerne, Maxene, Patty

8. Ashley, Mary-Kate

I had to do a little searching to find out. I knew 8, 6, 2 and 4.

PamelaTracy said...

Ah, but number one, The Bobbsey Twins should be famous!

Ausjenny said...

Um who are the bobbsey twins?
must be american. I grew up with Enid Bylton now if it was part of the famous five or secret seven. We got more of the english books and Aussie books than American growing up.

PamelaTracy said...

These are classics here, no longer read sadly. They were huge in the 60s but started way before that. Grade level, probably fourth or fifth, maybe younger.
