riddle me this Feb 12, 2008
i like to see the surprised look on the children when we read this book and they realize the answers to the riddles. some make sense and some you have to think about. it has a little of everything for all ages.
Excellent selection and presentation of riddles Nov 9, 2005
If you are looking for the ideal book of riddles for a young child, this is it. My almost-four-year-old daughter adores it, even though some of it is over her head. The illustrations are charming, and each cleverly contains a clue to the answer (nice for adults reading to children; the hint makes the answer all but obvious to you, so you can give more hints to the child). The stories interspersed among the riddles are fun, too. What makes this book so great is its selection of classic riddles. You've heard most of these, though probably not since you were small. The riddles have the cadences of nursery rhymes, and the same air of enchanting timelessness. Since discovering this book, we have looked at other riddle books and they usually fall far short, because the riddles just aren't very clever or funny. Often these books have many more pages than this one but far fewer enjoyable riddles. There's a reason certain things achieve the status of classic!
