YA Puzzles and problems concerning poker chips, presidents, tennis balls, missing letters, ancient coins and other oddities are gathered here.

Each puzzle is presented on a single page and illustrated with an appropriate and often humorous black-and-white drawing. Answers are included at the back. There is mental entertainment, magic, math, and more in this collection of classic tricks and problems.
