Pretty sure I've sussed out the +yellow thing, but keep getting rebuffed. Certain my typing is correct, but getting nowhere. Can't see the woods for the trees it seems! Any hints guys?

This is a rebus-type puzzle that helps you use words in new ways, which is a common theme among many puzzles in the book. Below are graded hints leading to the solution. It assumes you know [key.1], [key.2], and [key.3]. If you don't know them, go back and do those 3 pages before attempting this one.

Spoiler!
1) Using keywords 1-3, this makes a rebus that says: redwoods - forest + yellow. The answer to the rebus is the answer to the puzzle.

Spoiler!
2) To solve the 1st part of the rebus, you have to subtract 'forest' from 'redwoods'. What part of the word 'redwoods' may be similar to a forest?

Spoiler!
3) 'Forest' and 'woods' are synonyms, so taking 'woods' out of 'redwoods' leaves just 'red'.

Spoiler!
4) The rebus is now 'red + yellow'. If you mix those two colors, what color do you get?


Below is the answer. DO NOT CLICK IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO KNOW THE ANSWER!!

orange

Thanks for hints. I HAD worked out the method correctly, silly me had entered the wrong colour! Such a simple error. Pleased I'd worked out WHAT to do though! Again, thank you.
