Riddled with humor Dec 21, 2007
Reviewed by Dr. Michael Philliber for Reader Views (12/07)
From brain teasers to head-scratching riddles, Carrie Brown has made a good attempt at presenting riddles and jokes which are morally clean and normally simple enough for older children and adults to enjoy. In her book, "Lots O' Riddles: Good Clean Fun for Everyone," Brown has collected riddles that cover many topics and puts them together in light and readable arrangement. There are the funny, "What wears a coat in the winter and pants in the summer?" type of riddles, to the longer brain-teasing puzzles
One of the strengths of the book is the ease of finding jokes. There are 32 sections under which the riddles are assembled. For example, under the title, "Easter and Spring surprises," the reader will find humorous pieces about Easter, bunny rabbits, Valentine's day, and playing on hare/hair. In another section named; "Brainteasers and Mindstumpers," Brown has pulled together various types of humorous conundrums.
One of the main weaknesses of the book has to do with the difficulty of finding an audience that can follow the riddles and brainteasers. I read these to my younger children, only to have their eyes glaze over and ask me, "Daddy, what does that mean?"
In "Lots O' Riddles: Good Clean Fun for Everyone," overall, Brown has drawn together in a concise format a number of riddles and jokes that the family prankster will enjoy reading before the next Christmas party.
