This puzzle:

Rows: 15, Columns: 15 Words: 78, Blocks: 38 Missing: {JQWZ} Spans: 2 This is puzzle # 20 for Ms. Michaels.
Andrea Carla Michaels notes:

Again, I tried to branch out, this time with anagrams: LEAD, DALE, DEAL as anagrams of LADE. But I wish I had included something about LEDA "transforming" into something else, since according to myth went from human to swan. That would have made it a stronger reveal.
