Best known as the author of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll was also a noted mathematician and puzzlist. Toward the end of his life, he was working on a collection of puzzles, but died before it was completed. Edward Wakeling, a Lewis Carroll scholar and mathematician, drew on that collection to prepare this volume of 42 delightfully diverting mind-benders: A Geometrical Paradox; Castle Croquet; A Sticky but Polished Riddle; Predicting the Total; Pounds, Shillings and Pence; Cats and Rats; Eligible Apartments; A Good Prospect; The Monkey and Weight Problem; Feeding the Cat; A New Way to Pay Old Debts; Crossing the River; Who's Coming to Dinner?; Going to the Theatre; Two Tumblers; Spheres and Dodecahedrons; and 26 more. Enhanced with illustrations by John Tenniel (the original illustrator of Alice) and others, this volume will delight Lewis Carroll fans and puzzlists alike. Solutions are included.

About the Author:

Lewis Carroll (1832–98) was the pseudonym of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, a Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel, Through the Looking Glass, are rich repositories of his sparkling gifts for wordplay, logic, and fantasy.
