How It Works

Just like Mr. Jingles, some fruits do not belong up a tree:

Yes, bananas are imposters. Despite its height, the banana plant’s “trunk” is made of leaves instead of wood. That means it’s not really a tree.

Cross out the misplaced fruits and then read the remaining letters from left to right (apple, orange, pear, lemon, cherries).

Look for a new code in the next issue of Clubhouse magazine.
