The original French title for this one is "Petit Poucet Chez Les Gruntz" which translatez (via Alta Vista Babelfish) word-for-word as "Tom Thumb At The Gruntz" (which makez no sense to me), so I selected this title because there are fifteen Gruntz required to complete the puzzle. I modified the puzzle to add a Warp Letter (I found everything, but was not rewarded with the "PERFECT! score). Since I had to do that, I also corrected two Green Hold Switchez (to Blue onez) that control Bridge Tilez, and made a couple of the sub-puzzlez a bit more difficult by requiring a Grunt with a certain Tool to satisfy Purple Multi-Grunt Switchez, instead of "any old Grunt" being able to stand on them. While this CL is not 'easy', it is possible to complete it without a SAVE! (If you have the same idea of what a puzzle game should be as Gaby holds ... non-violent.)

My quick Google search out of curiosity revealed 2 possible options for the meaning of the original name "Petit Poucet Chez Les Gruntz":
1. The translator translates the name to Tom Thumb, who was a dwarf circus performer. Though this might be just a coincidence. 2. Petit Poucet is a name of a fairytale by Charles Perrault where the main character is the youngest of seven children. In a nutshell: he finds an ogre, takes his seven-league boots and makes fortune with them, then returns home he left earlier with his brothers. I believe that the creator of this level was inspired by this tale because I can see that they have some things in common (on the map image at least).
Had the statz pages of this designer laying around since December. Another "Perfect" (17:16).
The level is somewhat unique in that you already start with full (15) Gruntz. As you go through the map, you need to leave some of them on Purple Switchez to be able to finish the level. At the beginning you drop the Barehands obviously and those PMGSz which can only be reached by certain Toolz are also pretty obvious. Only when you get closer to the ending you start looking ahead to see which Gruntz will be no longer needed. Overall it's pretty easy, as for the most of the level you just can't go wrong and there are no Secrets at all. So I would settle with an "Easy+" rating, to signify the fact that it's more puzzling than "Quadrupletz Timez Three". Despite the map's large size, it doesn't take that long to finish it either, the islands are quite empty and there is a lot of water around them.
