Rainbow Comic: let’s do some puzzles for 5 year olds

A frequently overlooked feature in Rainbow Comic is the ‘What’s wrong with this picture?’ puzzle. This is normally overlooked by me because I’m busy using Paint to make Geoffrey call Bungle a bastard. And also that ‘What’s wrong with this picture?’, in the context of Rainbow Comic, is quite an overwhelming question.

Anyway – today I got bored with constantly winning at puzzles designed for pre-school age readers, and decided to share them with you. Because, let’s face it, if my blog is going to get a steady stream of 8 readers, then I’m going to write stuff with niche appeal. So here are two standout examples I found while scanning in a bunch of issues. I’ll post the puzzle, and then the puzzle with answers, so you can all play along at home.

One house rule I will insist on if you’re doing these puzzles along with me: I’ve left the upside down answers bit visible on the page, and I trust you not to look at it until you have all the answers. You’ll only be letting yourself down if you do that.

Our first puzzle is called ‘Dining Out’, and features the gang having a slap up meal at a fancy bollocks restaurant. I think they’re celebrating the upcoming reboot of Peer Gynt starring Jason Statham.
