About the Book


“A delightful collection of over 200 riddles, grouped by subject… Tiegreen’s black-and-white cartoons, which appear on each page, are humorous and clever. A helpful subject index is included, as well as a list of additional sources. “What did one library book say to the other?” “Can I take you out?” Be sure to take this one out for fun! School Library Journal

“… a wide variety of clever riddles. Each page or double-page spread features one subject (geography, animals, doctors, letters, or sports) or type (tricky, rhyming, noisy, descriptive, or nursery rhyme)… the inclusion of an index makes this a useful resource for teachers…” Booklist
