I will be very interested to know what you make of Rompecabezas.  I rather think William will, too. I found I could not put it down, but only understood it right at the end.

I haven't got the lid with the picture on it and I haven't found many edge pieces yet. Maybe it will become clearer  as I/we get more assembled. At least that is what you are saying will happen, Timmy.

I started by assembling the kitten in the top left hand corner, then moved to the man in the top hat below. The edge was the hardest. It does most definitely all come together, though you have two pieces in your very small amount of assembled edge that just don't really fit, but look as though they do.

--I think it's a fascinating little puzzle, very much original in conception. You have the advantage of having read the entire story, Tim, while the rest of us are at Chapter 5. It does keep getting better, certainly. Definitely a nice piece of work!
