Baffling Bookcase is a puzzle in Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. The puzzle must be solved in order to progress the story.


The books on the shelf are all out of order. When correctly arranged, the books' spines form an illustration.

Rearrange the books so that they are correctly lined up.

On the top screen, you will find a picture of the books as seen from below. Don't mind the burnt parts. It's still just as helpful!

Let's have a look at the slightly burnt clue on the upper screen and confirm a few things.

The largest red book is on the far left.
The small green book is on the far right.
The small blue book with the triangular spine is next to the small green book.

That leaves four remaining blue books.

We already know the location of three of the four blue books. The illustration should start becoming clear...

All that remains is one small blue book.

Three red books stand on the left side, followed by three blue books.

If you look carefully, you might just notice a green book next to them...

Final clue!
The books will form a picture like the one below, once they're in the right order.




Give it another try!



Now, doesn't it feel good to have things neat and in order?
