The Snake and the Fox is a highly imaginative and fun way to learn logic. Mary Haight's characters guide you through an elaborate tale of how logic works.

For anyone coming to logic for the first time, this is the best place to start. Mary Haight makes logic easy and fun - she asks the reader questions, and uses words instead of logic symbols with amusing pictures and characters to help them.
