Great job! Either ear muffs or ear plugs Smile

I just finished a new version of the book, with improved formatting, based on the feedback I got, along with extra content. http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/11605


For the final riddle, I shall use the bonus riddle from the book (number 102).

"We are up top, down bottom, charming and strange.
To change lead to gold, take us and rearrange."

And to make it extra hard, you have to also explain how your answer fits into the first line.

Quarks (specifically protons). There are a different number of protons in gold and lead, and a proton is a type of quark. The six flavors of quarks are up, down, strange, charm, bottom and top.

A proton is assumed to be made of _three_ quarks in the modern Standard Model of particle physics. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proton
