I'm also stuck at the first rhyme.

What's this about chalk? Where do I get that from?

Stuck again:
Spoiler: ShowHide
So I got through a bunch of rhymes (chalk & pork doesn't make much sense in Canada), now stuck on rhyming Drink. Also can't find anything new to do, can't figure what to do with the bird or the cabinet near the shipwreck. Just a hint please  :)

I hope you're not not still stuck on this, I'll put up the solutions just in case others fall foul of my rushed, made-up-as-I-went-along puzzle design:

Spoiler: ShowHide

The bird is used to distract the dogs so Scylla can't use them for eating, it always flies away in whatever direction you approach it so the solution is to chase it to either the outdoor room with the pipe or the room adjacent to it and then backtrack to the top level again so you can slide down and make it go the other direction. There's no ingame hint that the dogs will be distracted by the bird which is totally something I should add.

The cabinet can't be used just yet so no worries about that.

Use the chalk again for a rhyme for 'think' because it's pink allegedly. You may think it's more of a purple and I may agree with you. Hey ho, that's another thing I should change.
