An illustrated collection of riddles about snakes, including "What kind of snake do you find on the front of your car? A windshield viper!"
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Kindergarten-Grade 2-- Riddle lovers will groan with delight at some of these riddles, find a few difficult to understand, and simply not be amused by others. The most successful entries feature clever word play, but some seem forced, e.g., "What snake has scales, a long tongue, and flies? (a dead snake!)." A number of selections will definitely need some explanation if beginning readers are to understand the humor: the snake who loves arithmetic is a "good little adder." The best thing about the book is the cleverly drawn, lively cartoon illustrations. Long, colorful snakes form borders framing the text and picture for each riddle. A drawback is the placement of the answers on the same page as the riddles. It's hard to reach the calibre of Marc Brown's Spooky Riddles (Random, 1983), and this one falls short of that standard . It will, however, be popular with newly independent readers, riddle enthusiasts, and snake fans. --Sharron McElmeel, Cedar Rapids Community Schools, IA
