If you have trouble downloading, try using another browser (than on your first try). For instance, I’ve got a weird bug in my Internet Explorer that stops me from downloading pdf’s, but from Firefox it works as intended. Another possible problem could be if you have a very slow connection, as the file is pretty big.

As for page size: It’s easy to rescale it. Just let it show at 100% and hit print.

The logic – and other puzzles – are better discussed here (as mentioned by wordsaremagic):

But I have yet to see a correct solution…

Merry Christmas all from a Quibblet!

Since I’m lazy like a wizard, I wrote a program to check every possible step. ^^’

Harry takes Crookshanks across the river, goes back and brings the sack of grain to the other side, then goes back and brings Ron over, immediately saves Crookshanks from Ron’s clutches by taking the kneazle back, saves Scabbers from Crookshanks by taking him across to his owner, and finally goes back to give Crookshanks his third ride over the river. Harry himself crosses the river nine times.

is Harry not supposed to be with Ron otherwise Crookshanks will attack him?

1 Take Crookshanks across
2 Go back
3 Take Scabbers across
4 Go back but take Crookshanks back with him
5 Take Ron
6 Go back
7 Take the grain
8 Go back
9 Take Crookshanks

Think that’s it
