The Last Story Hints for Wii
When Horace TELLS you to find his book,you first have to find the well in Lazilus island. The well you are looking for has maids working around it.
Talk to people around town and stare at them in order to get extra items. For example, staring at the accordion player long enough (it's kind of hard because he's dancing) and you will get some gnome copper. You know when staring will get a reaction when the cross-hairs turn red.
