    The puzzle starts with the heads of 5 men. They each look very similar to the images on page 55. MS basically cuts and pastes and makes the 5 men "magically" into 4. The way he does this is by adding the hair ( upper half )of the 5th man to one of the 4 and the beard (lower half) to another one of the 4. He does it several steps to fool you into believing that all the pieces are still present. It is kind of obtuse to explain. If that didn't make sense...lol...let me know and I will try again.

    Oh, ok. I've seen puzzles like that before - I hope that's not actually the case with this page, as there are so many places to cut and shift that it would be a nightmare.

    Thanks, Caligirl!

    Okay,

    I don't know if this is posted anywhere else, but I did read through this thread and did not read it.

    There are definitely letter shapes in the borders here. I see half of an M in the upper right and several more partial letters along the border. We may need to cut and paste, or more simply, maybe just a mirror would work.

    But that is not what I wanted to point out. This is: If you look at the man with the hook on the bottom right of the page, take a close look at his arm and you will see that the word "next" is plainly printed on his arm. I have not had a lot of time to study this picture further (just started looking at it again this morning) as I am at work now...but will look more over the weekend and post Monday.

    Anyone else who has the inclination, please confirm and take a look at the borders with a mirror!!

    Hey Beetle - Could you be a little more specific where you think you are seeing the word 'next'? I do not see that on the bottom right guy with the L hook. Are you talking about the larger guy on the side border or the one on the outside border? Thanks for helping; I'll try to confirm what I can.

    beetleboy - great catch on the letters. there's a definite M in the third box down on the right. this is a mirror puzzle - i was wondering where he was going to use this one!
    on quick glance i see M 8 8 - is this what you see? dd

    Spiderman- Sorry I was not specific. It is on the arm of the other man directly below the hook. If you flip the book 90 degrees (binding toward you), it is written in small print along the edge of his arm. It's possible it could say 'text' instead of 'next', but I'm pretty sure it's next.

    dd- I definitely see the M in the corner. I did not see any 8's, but I don't have the book with me now, so I will have to look again tonight. I have not taken a mirror to that page yet, but plan to do so and will let you know.

    Did anyone else see a jewelled beetle on the left hand side using the mirror? I also got faces on the right hand side toward the top.
