The Riddle of the Rook
The rook is a bird which almost everyone knows - but knows almost nothing about. For example, how do these mysterious birds control their own numbers with such efficiency? Year after year some farmers kill every young rook on their land only to find that, come winter, the rook population has doubled.
This is a riddle that scientists are still trying to solve.

Five visitors to a carnival are dared by the sinister Dr Diabolo to enter his inner sanctum where he promises them a horrific glimpse of what the future has in store for them - if they permit the evil in their nature to rule their lives.
