Finally! A great puzzle book for kids that goes beyond word search and mazes! I've seen great logic and puzzle books for kids in Russian and was looking for something in English. I've asked every teacher and parent, I've search the web with every conceivable keyword - nothing. And then this book. My daughter (5.5 years) and I are spending many happy hours together. The right age, though, is probably 7+

If you are buying this book for an adult, I wouldn't. If you are buying this book for a child or someone even up to 16, I think it would be a good thing. It is too kiddish for adults and I sent one to a friend who has a lot of time on his hands and he completed it in two days. I also got one myself at the same time and was a little embarrassed that I had sent him the book because it was so kiddish.

Sometimes when you are looking for a puzzle book, you want more than activity for your brain. You want something that's a treat for the eyes, too. That's what's so great about this book. Not only are the puzzles top-notch, but the accompanying graphics are stellar. The illustrations -- both for the puzzles themselves, and for the accompanying ornamentation -- are full color and vividly rendered. Cartoon characters abound. There are several main ones, including Einstein, Alice in Wonderland, Sir Lancelot, Sherlock Holmes, and more. These are presented in a bright, clear and flowing style that has personality and humor.

And what about the puzzles themselves? I love them. Using the great graphics to the maximum advantage, they draw you in with intriguing scenarios. Many of the puzzles really put you "in the action," such as an excellent one that has astronauts floating all over the place, where you need to match their recorded views with their positions in the picture.

This book may more appealing to younger people, though, rather than adults. The puzzles have a decidedly juvenile feel. And the graphics are definitely geared more towards kids. While it's perhaps more appropriate to children, you may still really like this book if you have a soft spot for great cartoon-style illustration.

This book is awesome I am looking to purchase a second edition. Is there another one in print? This book is so much fun it gives your mind a real work out, hate to put it down. It is not like other puzzle books where you have to struggle to complete or get so frustrated you don't enjoy it. Everyone that sees me with it says it looks like a lot of fun, my response it is.

Just a big heads up for anyone sensitive to holiday issues. This should nearly be titled as some sort of "Halloween puzzle book" due to the MULTITUDE of Halloween material in it. Seriously.. it's a bit over the top without having called it out as such. Almost every 2nd page through the entire book has some sort of themed puzzle with witches, ghosts, spells, mummies, haunted house, gnomes, monsters, cemeteries, etc. There are also a lot of "Christmas" (ie. Santa, stocking stuffers) puzzles. Just so you know what you're buying..

My 7 year old loves this book. She wanted to take it to school and share it with her friends. That's always a good sign. I realize that there is a ton of stuff online but I really prefer limit screen time and let them enjoy this stuff on print.

Great book for any age really! I gave this to a friends 13 year old boy who just broke his arm! I wanted him to have an activity that he could use one hand and do comfortably! As soon as he got this - he and his 9 year old sister started working on it immediately. They will get many hours of enjoyment from the book. It's a Great buy!
