to the logic question:
1. take scabbers across
2. go back
3. take crookshanks across
4. take scabbers back, leaving croodshanks
5. take the grain across, leaving scabbers on the original bank
6. go back
7. take scabbers across again.
8. whee! all across and uneaten!!

Great attempt, blackandwhitemiko! But you’ve forgotten to bring Ron across, and when you start by taking Scabbers across, Ron is left behind with Crookshanks – which will end in disaster!

What size paper is this issue meant to print on? I am thinking it is for USA legal size. Any suggestions for those of us living in international size paper land? I have the choice of A4 or A3 – I can fit on the A3, but it is huge.
Any one able to help:? Thanks – Katiebob in New Zealand

ok:
1- Take Scabbers across
2- Go back
3- Take Ron across
4- Go back
5- Take the grain across
6- Go back
7- Take Crookshanks across

There, I think that would get all of them across and unharmed!

page size is, of course, flexible when displayed onscreen, but the layout program used was set at 11 × 17 inches—tabloid size.

No wait… I’m correcting myself…

1- Take Ron across
2- Go back
3- Take Scabbers across
4- Go back
5- Take the grain across
6- Go back
7- Take Crookshanks across

I think that works better : )

lily_luna – that’s also a good attempt, but still not right! If you take Ron across first then Scabbers will eat the grain, if Crookshanks doesn’t eat him first! You can’t leave Scabbers and the grain together or Crookshanks with Scabbers unless Harry or Ron is around.
