Statue Creek

Rules:

  • Shade some cells (60, to be exact) to form the 12 given pentominoes, rotations and reflections allowed.
  • No two pentominoes may share an edge, but touching by corners is allowed.
  • The unshaded cells must form a single, connected region.
  • A clue tells how many of the four cells around it are shaded.
