When I first played the game, I didn't know there was an easier way to hitting the boxes. I just smacked them in random orders till I hit the right order. Of course, I had to go through a couple of Shy Guys, but the experience was good.

I actually found the trick to finding the right order without using the Dictionary/Message. Each box makes a different note when you hit one. All you have to do is arrange the notes from low to high and hit the appropriate boxes.
You don't even need to deal with the Shyguys if you get it wrong. You can just enter the next area on the right, and when you come back again they will be gone and you can start over. ^_^
