Are you puzzled yet???

A friend recently sent us this puzzle and I had a good time trying to figure it out!

There are 5 different houses each with a different color.  Each house is owned by a person of a different nationality.  The 5 owners each drink only one type of beverage, eat one type of fruit, and own one classic book.  Using the clues below determine who owns Moby Dick

  • The German lives in a red house.
  • The Swede owns The Scarlet Letter.
  • The Dane drinks tea.
  • The green house is on the immediate left of the white house.
  • The green house owner drinks coffee.
  • The person who eats bananas owns To Kill A Mockingbird.
  • The owner of the yellow house eats apples.
  • The man living in the house right in the middle drinks milk.
  • The Norwegian lives in the first house.
  • The man who eats pears lives next door to the one who owns The Grapes Of Wrath.
  • The man who owns Call of the Wild lives next door to the man who eats apples.
  • The owner who eats strawberries drinks root beer.
  • The Brit eats apricots.
  • The Norwegian lives next to the blue house.
  • The man who eats pears has a neighbor who drinks water.
Hmmm....think you know the answer?  I'll let you think about it for a little while.  The answer will be posted sometime soon!
