Gr. 3-7. Nonsolitaire players, unaware that there are so many ways to play, will find this title revealing. Street begins with a basic introduction to cards and then covers more than 65 games and variations, starting with the easiest and ending with complex two-pack games. Each game features helpful diagrams showing the layout and potential movement of the cards. The directions and tips for strategy are succinct and clear, written in a breezy style on well-laid-out pages. Even so, many of the games require the reader to go over the directions a number of times, and it's nearly impossible to dive into the complicated games at the end of the book without some experience. Alan Tiegreen's funny pen-and-ink cartoons spark up the book by filling nearly every page. An excellent resource on solitaire for children. Todd Morning
