This is the best puzzle book ever.
Avan Shroff
I find the puzzles to be just the right level of challenging - hard enough to be satisfying, but still very doable.

I like using Crayola's twistable colored pencils for these color puzzles.

Let's start with this: I love link-a-pix, and it's easily my favorite place to go at Conceptis [...]. So when I saw last year that this book was coming out...well, I can hardly tell you how hard the wait was. I picked it up this morning and solved the first two puzzles and already I'm in love with it.

Surprises abounded - I thought the puzzles were black and white, BUT a set of six-colored pencils accompanies the book; yep these are ALL color link-a-pix! The paper, much as in "Fill-In Paint Doku", is of very high quality.

One of the nicest surprises came in fixing errors. I like using Crayola's twistable colored pencils for these color puzzles. In this book, however, bearing down too hard will result in the color staying...it's difficult to erase. What I've found, however, that going lightly helps. If you forget and color in too dark though, erase as much as you can...this paper is such high quality that I found coloring over a section I had just erased worked just fine without any color blending when I went back over it with the right color(no red and blue making purple, for example)! If I colored over a section that was supposed to be blue with orange, I erased as much orange as a could, then colored it blue and... it colors over blue! Fantastic! That makes it almost impossible to err color wise!

Matching colors was hard with the Twistables, but doable...just realize the colors enclosed are pink (which is confusing, because in the early going, I have not encountered ANY pink), red, blue, green, black, and brown. Instead of pink you'll need a light orange. I bring this up because in poor lighting it was hard to tell if the number representing orange was yellow or orange. Trust me, it's definitely orange.

I am used to doing Pixel Puzzles where black & white pictures are formed by coloring in squares with number clues. This is a little different. The numbers are actually on some of the squares and you have to figure out how to connect the common numbers. The problem is that sometimes there are too many variables. I have had to "cheat" by checking the back to see if I'm doing it right. On some occassions, I've been wrong. It is something that takes time to get used to. Since some of the squares remain white, you don't always know if you missed something or not. Some of the colored numbers in the puzzles are too close to tell which pencil to use. The brown and pink are very similar as are the blue and green. Best to do this in VERY good light. They should have had a tan pencil instead of a pink one for skin tone. I do enjoy this, but it gets frustrating when I find that I've done it wrong. You can't easily erase color pencil marks. I have found that after sticking with it, these puzzles are HIGHLY ADDICTING. I've lost lots of sleep and skipped many chores to finish a picture. I'm looking forward to more books of these puzzles in the future.

I had never seen this type of logic puzzle until my husband got it for me as a present. It is similar to Pixel Perfect in that you are filling in little boxes based on number clues, but it has a Mine Sweeper-like logic to it.

Rather than having the numbers on the top and side with spaces in between the numbers to show how many boxes will be filled-in in a row like traditional pixel puzzles, these have the numbers embedded in the puzzle itself. The boxes you fill in do not stick to going in one direction either. You are given two numbers to show how two boxes connect. If you start at the number 11 you will have to go through 11 boxes (including starting and ending boxes)until you reach another number 11 of the same color. You can go up/down and left/right, but not diagonally, and you can not go through a box that is already colored even if it uses the same color.

I find them to be quite challenging and very time consuming, so if you are looking for a puzzle book that you won't be done with in a matter of days, this book is for you. There are 129 puzzles of various sizes in the book . There is no ranking for the puzzles by skill level, and there are no clues to let you know what the picture is going to be about. Each one has been a new surprise and it is a lot of fun to reach the point in the puzzle when you finally get an inkling about what the picture is going to be. The pictures themselves are very well done and you are never left wondering what they are suppose to be, but just in case all the answers have the pictures labeled.

The book itself is spiral bound so it lays flat when opened and the paper is very high quality, just a couple of steps down from card stock.

I love puzzles and I really enjoy coloring so this was a great purchase. The book is really good quality and I took the advice of some other reviewers and ordered the Crayola twistables. They work great - no sharpening and good color choices.
My only issue with this book is that sometimes it's a little difficult to tell the colored numbers apart. Green and blue can look similar and red and orange can too. But I've always managed to figure it out and it really is a very minor complaint.
Over all, I have been thrilled with this book. There are lots of puzzles of varying sizes and the pictures are really cute when finished. Definitely worth the money!
