I have done 18 out of 20 - stuck on Angel’s Butchers and the Silhouette in the window.
Any hints please ?

I have done 18 too - stuck on the Angel's Butchers and the Daisy smoke. Some of the answers made me go "Ohhh of course!"

For those who haven't yet seen this - Hidden Books Game

For the butcher one, literally what you see in the window in the form if a sandwich.

Elegran Sat 16-Nov-19 12:42:34

The silhouette, too, is very simple - what do you see?

Elegran Sat 16-Nov-19 12:44:27

I did think that about the butchers, but didn't know of a book of that name so dismissed it!

Just finished it....phew!

For the "Daisy, Coco" clue ignore the smoke...think Chanel...

Think about what's on display in the butcher's window - a popular sandwich filling. And then look at what it's resting on.

In the US you'd be asked if you wanted your filling on white, or on wholemeal, or on.....?????

Up to 16 but stuck on Agnes Auguries..

You need a Terry Pratchet fan for that one.

I just have the Lindley Hall Farm one to go. No-one else has mentioned that, so I'm assuming that I'm being a bit dense! Any clues?

Middle England

hel228 Wed 20-Nov-19 13:56:44

ok - got it now. I was being dense
All done now, thank goodness!

SALLYSEAGULL Thu 21-Nov-19 11:21:27

please please give me a word to help with the silhouette

Elegran Thu 21-Nov-19 11:36:56

Sallyseagull It is what you see in the pic, not anything cryptic or clever. Look just through the window and at the view inside, ignore anything outside the window. You might have to try juggling little words like "the" or "a" but your first and simplest reactions will be right.

Got all but the two girls on the swing with the Lemon and Thyme cupcake. Can someone please give me a clue?

Elegran Thu 21-Nov-19 21:54:10

Ignore the lemon and concentrate on the sound of the thyme.

Chocgirl Fri 22-Nov-19 22:58:34

Thank you @Elegran, got it! I hadn’t heard of that book.

Elegran Sat 23-Nov-19 09:02:54

Neither had I until I searched Amazon for all kinds of combinations of words, and it came up with that.
