Take your brain for a jog around an entertaining new collection of twisters. Many play with clues that are numbers, letters, or words, but are tougher than they look. Three examples:
o Find the single letter clue that tells you a monkey's name, where it lives, and its message to you.
o Complete a crossword puzzle by filling blanks with words that mean the opposite of the clues.
o Finish a joke by making up the punch line.

About the Author:

Martin Gardner is famous for his 'Trick of the Month' column for Physics Teacher magazine - which is in turn reprinted regularly in Magician - the magazine for professional magicians. He has been publishing books of tricks since 1935!

From Booklist:

Gr. 4-8. Best known for the column "Mathematical Games," which ran in Scientific American for 25 years, puzzle-master Gardner here presents 103 short challenges based on wordplay. Readers must have their wits about them, but most of the conundrums are solvable without a peek at the appended answers (and enjoyable even after peeking). Although most of the puzzles stand alone, many are illustrated with lively, cartoon-style ink drawings, and some depend on clues in the pictures for their solutions. Teachers who want to encourage verbal awareness in their students will find the book an appealing source of good-natured puzzlers that challenge children to think more playfully about language.
