Summary
Combines two previously published works, resulting in ninety-three brain-teasing puzzles with an emphasis on humor
Amazon.com description: Product Description:

Here's a bonanza of 93 stimulating brainteasers, ideal for limbering and strengthening young mental muscles. Many of the puzzles are classics, while others are presented here for the first time. Ridiculous riddles, tantalizing teasers, intricate mazes, deceptive illusions, tricky questions, and a host of unusual word and picture puzzles offer young readers hours of challenging fun.
Youngsters will love such intriguing mind-builders as The Maze of Minotaur, the Dime-and-Penny Switcheroo, Mr. Bushyhead's Problems, Knock, Knock…Who's There?, Mrs. Windbag's Gift, Find the Duck, Bee on the Nose, The Flatz Beer Goof, and many more.
Compiled by noted puzzle expert Martin Gardner, this collection combines two books in one, providing a double helping of puzzle fun in one convenient volume. Richly illustrated with diagrams and hilarious drawings by Laszlo Kubinyi, this curious and comic collection is the perfect companion for car trips, parties and picnics, or long rainy days. Solutions are at the back of the book — but don't peek until you've given the puzzles a try!
