This is the fifty-first puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter. To access this puzzle, you must talk to Nabby. In order to solve this puzzle, you must raft the family across the river.


[edit] Hints

Hint One
    This one might be hard to work out all in your head. Try a more hands-on approach, and experiment by moving people on the raft.

    You'll work out the trick to this puzzle soon enough.

Hint Two
    Once you've worked out the trick to this puzzle, concentrate on trying to get the children over first.

Hint Three
    If you send two children over in one trip, you'll get stuck. Try sending the children over one at a time.

    After that, experiment with the order to get the parents across.

Super Hint
    Here are the first few steps:
    1. Child 1 rows across with Dad.
    2. Dad rows back.
    3. Child 2 rows across with Mom.
    4. Mom rows back.
    5. Child 3 rows across with Dad.
    You should be able to work out the rest without too much trouble. Do you best to help out this nice family in need.

In addition to the solution shown here, there is an alternate method in which neither parent ever rides on the raft with a child. If you haven't solved it that way yet, it might be a fun extra challenge for you.
