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

Clues:

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.

 BadBunnee02 Apr 27, 2014 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". BB02 klsowell Apr 28, 2014 Thanks so much!! I am fairly new at making these logic-grids and am glad for the positive rating. trewq Apr 28, 2014 nice work! I would have liked it a little harder--and I think some of the clues may be unnecessary, but well done overall J-Five May 18, 2014 I misread I thought it said pages instead of words. klsowell Jun 20, 2014 Lol, if there's a 10000-page book in the world, I want it just to say I own the world's longest book. mrsfessler Jul 16, 2014 Interesting topic. The puzzle could be solved without clue #4 Aced Apr 15, 2015 #3 is so stereotypical! Nytwynd Apr 22, 2015 the 10000 page book is quite easy to make.... just make sure that it's 1 word per page OR 1 letter page page ultimatecub Apr 28, 2015 Very easy but fun bloody-albatros Jun 15, 2015 Nice, but too many clues ... maybe move the fourth clue into hint section ... LanceAlot Sep 26, 2015 Quick solve, but well done _Eclipse_ Nov 12, 2016 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.
