Leave the bar, go left, and check out the music store

Note what the t-shirt says they will trade music for.

Plant Store

Back up and go left into the plant shop.

Go forward to the the back room. Read the sign to the right, put on the glove, zoom in and harvest the pepper.

Back up and go to the room on the left. Climb the beanstalk, take the plant pot out of the box, and note what the sign says the plant pot needs.

Bar

Go back to the bar and give the soup eater the pepper. He rewards you with his disembodied flaming head.

House

Leave the bar, go right twice and into the house.

Go right into the dark room. Light it with the flaming head.

Look behind the door and note the headless bird. It wants a bird's head, though.

Zoom in on the floor and water your plant. Go up the beanstalk and down the hall.

Zoom to your left, click on the box, and take the smile and the bird's head.

Zoom to your right and look at the frame--there's nothing you can do right now here.

Go back to the dark room and give the bird its head. It rewards you with a key.

Cavern

Leave the house and go to the right and down the hall. Zoom in on the phonograph. There's nothing you can do with it yet.

Cavern

Take the LP to the phonograph, and you're permitted to go behind the door.

Go to the room on the right, where you encounter a giant cockroach with a fierce dog.

Have an unpleasant chat with them, then give the dog the bone, and the click on the purple thing you got from the mailbox. That takes care of them.

Zoom in on the plant pot with the dried plant.

Back out of the room and go into the other one. Note that there's a ladder going down, then arrows continuing past it.


Go down the ladder, and note the washed-up ferryman with water flowing down a drain. You can't do anything there. Take the grey stick.

Block his jaws with the lever, and take a tooth.

Go back and right. Go into the tent. Note the cauldron, and read what you need to make something dangerous smaller.

Boiling water, a tooth, and a shell.

Go out of the tent and to the right again, into a building with daisies beside it.

Screw in the lightbulb.

Catch the butterfly.

Back out and go to the right again and down the hall.

Take the torch from the wall. Go into the firefly room. Take the sleeping firefly pupa (?)

Go back up, and zoom in on the floating garbage can. The hermit crab inside has a sign behind him that says a bigger home is better.

Trade him the jar for the shell. Have a visit with the menacing cockroach to the left...no poison left for him now.

Go back to the cauldron and make your brew. You have nothing to put it in, however.

Go back up to the lake. Give the firefly to the frog, who rewards you with nothing but a faint smile.

Give the butterfly to the butterfly ghoul, who gives you a fuel can.

Take the fuel to the daisy, who gives you a gourd.

Fill up the gourd with your brew, and go tackle the roach.

And...you're...hume???

Had to quit for a rest, but enjoyable and pretty easy so far--like Lori says, it flows fairly logically. When I come back I have to figure out how to

make the second plant grow--find water?

and what to do with the

stick-like thing I've found.

Good game. I did encounter a glitch though.

I made the brew for the shrink potion, but I didn't have a container in my inventory for it. I still had the butterfly and the poor lightning bug I cruelly snatched from his home and bed. However, a couple of clicks on the brew magically yielded a filled potion bottle that I used to complete the game. Being the completionist that I am, I re-played the game to do it the right way.

And I have one question

What is the point of kidnapping the lightning bug and feeding it to the frog. All I got was a smile from the frog. It didn't seem to do anything to help progress the game at all.

The stick-like thing will allow you to find the source of water for the second plant! If you're talking about the stick thing I think you are. Go back and take a look at the area that became available after you made the first plant grow...

If you tried to enter the building next to the frog with only the butterfly in your inventory, he'd eat it. You can retrieve it from him, but you can't get past him to exchange the butterfly for the fuel. So you need the firefly to feed him first, then he'll let you pass!

I do really enjoy this series, and was so excited to see part 3 has been released! I loved it.

I love the Seussian art in this series, but another big bonus for me is that these games are just challenging enough to make me really pay attention, but not so hard I get frustrated and ragequit. Great work!

I found it too easy to just click on all the items I had in each scene to see if it would cause something to happen.

I wish there was a more specific way to use an item than just to click on the item within the scene where it can be used. Although that might be frustrating since it's not always easy to tell what some of the items are supposed to be.

@shjack180,

regarding the lightning bug and the frog, if I recall correctly, we had to feed the frog again to get it to give up the fly that we needed for the fly-wanting guy in the next room.

Sorry about the missing spoiler tags in my previous post.

Stuck at a giant cockroach.

I have some sort of purple thing that I got in a mailbox with a note that said to use it when I have cockroach problems, but it's not helping.

Hint?
