Magic Zoo

The first thing you see at the zoo is a wizard on a camel. The wizard takes you to the elephants.

Here you find a bag of nuts on the ground. There is a big sign that says, "Do NOT feed the elephants!" But that doesn't stop you. The elephants eat all the nuts.

After a minute, the elephants grow smaller and smaller until they are the size of rats. They are so small that they walk through gaps in the fence. Soon there are tiny elephants running all over the zoo.

The wizard finds you and says, "You fed the elephants! Can you not read? I'll have to do a magic spell to make the elephants big again! You will stay at the zoo until every last elephant is in its place!"

It takes you five long days to get all the elephants back to where they belong. Now you always read signs.
