Three friends - Jack, Lucy, and Elaine - recently joined a writing club, but they got their stories all mixed up! Using the clues, can you determine whose story is whose, and how many words each one has?

Names: Jack, Lucy, Elaine
Story Titles: The Pirate's Quest, Into the Garden, Aether Dreams
Numbers of Words: 2000, 5000, 10000,


1. The three stories are: the one with 10000 words, the one entitled The Pirate's Quest, and Elaine's story.

2. The writer of Into the Garden thought her book would be the longest, but it ended up the shortest.

3. Jack's book had nothing to do with flowers or magic; he instead chose a more boy-ish theme.

4. Lucy's book had a magical, multi-dimensional theme that had nothing to do with pirates or gardens.

Open Grid Solver


The Pirate's Quest was 5000 words long and was written by Jack.
Into the Garden was 2000 words long and was written by Elaine.
Aether Dreams was 10000 words long and was written by Lucy.

Thank you for the challenge. Interesting Teaser.

I am not very good at Logic Grids, but I attempt them because of the challenge.

I gave it top rating for "fun".

nice work! I would have liked it a little harder--and I think some of the clues may be unnecessary, but well done overall

I misread I thought it said pages instead of words.

Lol, if there's a 10000-page book in the world, I want it just to say I own the world's longest book.

the 10000 page book is quite easy to make.... just make sure that it's 1 word per page OR 1 letter page page

Jack wrote Pirate Quest with 5000 words, Elaine wrote Into the Garden with 2000 words and Lucy wrote Aether Dreams with 10,000 words.

Personally, I think Aether Dreams sounds the best.
