Use the clues provided to create a string of words that when spoken together will sound like a book title.

-1. sob + repair + a tongue-in-cheek gag + a special area of the market + intended
-2. an artificial outdoor area used to breed rabbits + pod vegetables
-3. a type of blue bird + hair removal product
-4. a canine + indefinite article + recline + wet thoroughly
-5. a Stooge + urinated + a fish sickness
-6. put on + vital + cereal grain + golf support
-7. biblical pronoun + un-even? + slang for insult + body of water
-8. rank + ova + ate like a chicken + indefinite article + eschews
-9. goon + speed + felines + pollinator
-10. German refusal + college bigwig + had dinner + UV leader? + pro
-11. pact + word used in logical syntax + that girl + female family members

This clue is a pun for a book title

-12. I can't find the things I need to play craps! (2 words)

Sometimes lost is where you need to be. Just because you don't know your direction doesn't mean you don't have one.

I see these are tough! Koala, Michele, manxman and Marian thumbsup

All of the final answers are right but some building blocks are a bit shaky

Joan, take a look at the 4th part. This is a crossword type clue meaning what comes before UV
Lex, when you rank something such as eggs, you do this to them
ScarletDragon, I'm looking for a slang word for an insult or someone being disrespectful. My word starts with the same letter in the word you have

I knew that part was not correct, but the only thing I could come up with before UV was S and that didn't work.
Hoped you wouldn't notice. lol

8. rank = rate, sounding almost like great (I was trying to work out how/why rank = great) crazy

Thanks Redz: still took me a while as our school terminology is not the same... 8. grade = rank grin

(mind you I should have worked it out earlier, especially once I had Cue's hint)

I think all we have left is the third word to justify 7, and ScarletDragon is not biting: I might have gone with hiss, but Cue's hint suggests diss (as in disrespect) smile
