A bit more highbrow this time, can you guess the book titles from the SQL clues below?

select burning_point
from   paper;

select toothed_gearwheels
from   device
where  colour = '#FFCCOO';

select *
from   creatures
where  species in (
  'Homo sapiens',
  'Mus musculus'

select spouse
from   voyager
where  chrono_displacement = 'Y';

select *
from   felines
where  clothing in (select type
                    from   headgear);

public class Rye extends  Wheat{
  public static void main() {
    try {
      Rye rye = new Rye();
    catch (CerealException e) {
      System.out.println("Got you!");
I think most (all?) of these have been made into films now anyway though...

As usual, put your answers in the comments!
