Son's Slipup (Son's Blunder in the UK version) is a puzzle in Professor Layton and the Last Specter.


"Hey, Dad! I finished making the LONDON one that you asked for."

"Thanks, Son. It looks great, but... you got one letter wrong."

"What?! No way! That's... Oh. I guess I did. I'll fix it right away!"

So which letter did the son get wrong?

Circle the incorrect letter.

Trying to figure out this puzzle in your head can be confusing. Instead, try using the Memo function to draw out the letters carefully and see what you can find.

Looking at the word as it's shown in the puzzle, it seems there are three incorrect letters.

However, only one letter is incorrect. Try looking at it from a different angle.

For starters, try reversing the text as if looking at its reflection in a mirror. Use the Memo function to help visualize how this would look.

Now you're just one step from figuring out how the word is supposed to look and which letter is incorrect.

Did you figure out what the word would look like reflected in a mirror? From there, shift your perspective 180 degrees or so...




The "L" is wrong.

The word have been carved onto a giant stamp, so it needs to look correct when stamped onto something.

If you were to stamp it as shown in the puzzle, you'd see a big mistake!
